Rose Rib Socks

The 8th sock in Green Planet Yarn’s “Socks for All” sock club was this Rose Rib sock pattern by Evelyn A. Clark.  The pattern can be found in the book Sock Knitting Master Class by Ann Budd.   I used a medium blue sock yarn from Madeline Tosh.  I have misplaced the tag for the colorway,  but I think it might have been the “Rain Water” color yarn.  Anyway, I really like the color as it goes very well with blue jeans.  It might not have been the best choice for these socks though as it ended up having some variation in the color which interferes with the pattern visibility.   These seemed remarkable easy and quick after the Halloween Sock and the rib pattern at the start of the sock is lovely.  I did find them to be a bit long for my tastes, so I’d probably shorten them by 3 or 4 repeats next time.
