Summer of Socks - Pair #1

Pattern: Twin Rib from Danniknits
Yarn: Opal Cotton
Needles: US 1 dpns

Notes: Quick and easy knit. I made these with a shorter leg than usual because it's summer cotton socks still need to be comfy. I do love the way this pattern looks and I know I will keep on making it. This is the third time I've used it for self-striping yarn. The yarn is different. It is a cotton/wool blend so it is still stretchy and not too splitty. I'm glad I like it because I have another skein of it in a different colorway waiting for me.

Next up are Priscilla's Dream Socks from Favorite Socks. I think I'll keep working on my Opal stash.
