I did a wee bit of christmas knitting this year. These sock were given to my sister, who really appreciates the hand knit socks. I don't use a pattern but i like to credit the Yarn Harlot's sock recipe. Because that is the pattern I used when learning to knit socks, and now the method that I continue to use.
On a whim, I added a little rib detail at the cuff. My sister was pleased with them, but after wearing them for a day, said that they didn't fit as well as socks I made her in the past. I think that they are a little loose in circumference. These are 64-stitch socks, and I think going forward I'll make 60-stitch socks for her, and do the ribbing down the full length of the cuff, so that they are fit more snugly.
