FO: Garter cuff socks

These sock were an experiment. I wanted to try combination knitting and I wanted to figure out how to make a garter stitch cuff. I’m pleased with the outcome considering that these were just a trial. The gauge was really off between the two socks because I kept forgetting to use the new method… hehe. The first three thumbnails compare the two socks. It’s really obvious how much better the second sock looks (the one using combination method). It’s a lot stretchier.

The yarn is Fiesta Boomerang in “Clematis.” Other than the cuff, the sock is just an ordinary, top-down sock on 40 stitches with a short row heel.

    I love the colorway. I am adding a sideways garter stitch border to my Pi shawl and I like the look of the attatched garter. I think these are really nice!
