Blue Ginger socks
Thanks to Astrid and Trekking ProNatura along with size 1 KnitPicks circulars, these socks are now off the needles. I called them Blue Ginger because of the incredible blue, it's almost sapphire blue, and the pattern which is sometimes called gingerbread. Notice I didn't use any ribbing? Done toe up, the pattern was on the top of the foot and the entire ankle and had enough stretch to be it's own ribbing. I just did a stretchy bind-off, as I always do for socks and voila. New socks. Now to wash them and see if they bloom and I lose some of that incredible cable detail.
