I’m suffering from serious second-sock-syndrome, people. I decided to make a pair of Cabled Knee Highs, but extended them to well over my knee in 2×2 ribbing and reinforced the sole with the slip stitch pattern commonly used on heel flaps.
It looks nice on the foot, the colour is a very delicious That Ol’ Chestnut in Dragon Sock, and the fit is good overall.
But omg the thigh high ribbing! I now loathe ribbing like I loathe nothing else. I suppose the second sock will have to wait a while to materialize!
The sock is so long, I couldn’t even get the whole thing into one picture without resorting to some cunning origami folds to show all the textures.
