Although flashy socks are fun, they don’t quite go with the office chinos and polo shirt. Enter the plain rib, or ‘boring enough for work’ socks. These socks have a bit of wear already, because John absconded with them as soon as they were off the needles.
I’m finding that I don’t hate making ribbed socks as much as I thought I would. They are great car knitting, because I don’t have to think about them. Endless rows of garter stitch, though, still drives me around the bend. What’s up with that?
