Basic Ribbed Socks

Finally I have finished my Ribbed socks. This is a very basic , very easy sock pattern to knit. My favorite kind of sock pattern is EASY. The pattern for this sock can be found here
This is the best fitting sock. They are nice and snug, and the leg does not slip down at all. Really a perfect fit for me. The toe part of this sock is different then most sock patterns. It is 23 rows for the toe, you end up with 8 stitches left on your needles. You just cut your yarn and draw it through the 8 final stitches. So very easy.
I used Lion Brand Sock-Ease for these socks in the color Cotton Candy. It is a very pretty pink with purple, lime green, and white strips in the yarn. This yarn is 75% wool and 25% nylon finished with Aloe Vera.
Other exciting knitting news- My ball winder came in the mail today!!!! You know what I am going to be doing this afternoon! Winding skeins of yarn into balls!!!!! :)
