the heel-less wonder


A while back I found a sock pattern booklet from the 1940s. One of the patterns is for a sock with a "smart new look" and here it is in KnitPicks sock garden (geranium). It's basically a tube sock in k4 p4 ribbing that is offset every four rows. This is sock #1. I also have a pair started in solid bright pink.

Cool! It reminds me of the spiral ribbed putter cover I made my husband. I always wondered how that would look as a sock.

There's a sock like this in Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush.

I love the color you're using!
