Bamboo Socks

The promised photo, cute, eh?

So I call them bamboo socks not only ‘cos they’re in bamboo yarn, but also because I used a 2×1 rib, and that sort of makes me think of bamboo.

Normally I reinforce toes and heels with heel stitch, but this time I didn’t, since I used small needles, and so the knit is very dense anyway (they’re winter socks). I knit from the toes up, using a figure of 8 cast on, a heel-flap with wrapped short-rows for shaping and finally a tubular bind off, which has a nice effect, though I should have reduced the stitches up there. Still, the ribbing holds the socks up nicely anyway.

I would have made them a little longer, but each sock is nearly a ball of wool, and I didn’t have a source to get a third in, so never mind!
