Remember I ordered some sock yarn recently? Well, I used it to cast on another pair of simple socks. I used to avoid self striping yarn, but when you don't have time to follow a pattern, it is the best way to create socks with some interest. I picked up the Firefighter colorway and casted on a pair of socks for a friend. This will be my first gift socks to go outside of the family, without the wearer nearby to check for fit. This is also my first time knitting with Knit Pick's Felici. I love the pop of red between the neutral gray.
I cast on 60 stitches with a 2x2 rib and plan to start the heel when the leg reaches 8 inches. Just a half inch more to go. I love mindless knitting!
