Ripple Weave Socks

I liked these socks the moment I saw them in the Fall 2006 issue of Vogue Knitting (aka the best issue of Vogue Knitting evah! Seriously - I love almost everything in this issue.) It was the kind of pattern that made me go Hmmmm.... and part of the reason I knit these was just to figure out how it was done.

Pattern: Ripple Weave Socks by Charlene Schurch
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock in Quilla
Needles: size US 1 dpn's

I had a little bit of a slow start with these. There is an error in the third line of the chart that is not reported so I had to figure it out myself after my sock did not look like the one in the picture. I ripped out and started again. From there on it was smooth sailing.

These were really enjoyable to knit and I really like the small details of them, like how the cuff and the toe blend into the pattern, and the Eye of Partridge heel, and the all over twisted rib. These are going to get a lot of play once the colder weather comes around.
