One down, one to go

The first trekking sock... she is done!

Yesterday in between interview appointments, I managed to catch sneaks at other peoples' blogs. There seems to be a rash of finished socks this week. I'm pleased to say that I'm half way finished with my trekking socks at this point.

I've been sneaking in little bits on these here and there. Thursday I had my hair done and took them to the salon. Between that and some knitting time Thursday night I managed to polish them off. There was nothing like the joy of kitchener stitching that toe off Friday morning!

Now, half the job left to go!

Charlene Schurch's four stitch ribbing pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks and using a rotating rib pattern (ala the Harlot): regular 2x2 ribbing, but moving the ribbing over one stitch every 10 rounds.
