Another One Bites the Dust

I'm on a roll baby! The Alternating 2x2 Ribs are finished.


Specs:

Pattern: Alternating 2x2 Rib - SKS
Yarn: Mountain Colors 4/8's Wool
Needles: 4 US Brittany dpn's for sock, 3.0 mm Holz & Stein Rosewood dpn's for ribbing
Size: Women's size 9 1/2
Started: Not recorded. Finished: April 11, 2007

This was a most enjoyable yarn and pattern. I used the Easy Toe cast-on and the PGR short-row heel method. Since the 4/8's is a worsted weight yarn, I didn't do any patterning on the foot to reduce bulk. The yarn is an excellent choice for teaching. I was able to get an entire pair out of 1 skein and had about a yard and a half left.
