The Witty One's Lorna's Laces Cedar socks using Charlene Schurch's Chain Rib pattern in Sensational Knitted Socks Posted by Picasa

I love, love, love Charlene Schurch's Sensational Knitted Socks book. I used her Chain Rib pattern (p. 44-48) to make The Witty One's first pair of handknitted socks. I think they turned out well, however I am not happy with the instep.

The next time I make one of these 6-stitch pattern socks, I will knit the mirror image of the chart in order to get a purl trough next to the knitted gusset decreases. (I'd had the same problem with my Slipped-Stitch Rib socks from the same book, and I didn't think to make that modification for The Witty One's socks!)

Happy Sunday!
