Four Feet

This Monday morning, I have two pair of socks knit with FF Lightweight Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn to share with you.

These are Linda Jo's men's Christmas gift socks knit with the Deepest Forest colorway. I'm personally a big fan of various types of broken and spiral ribs for socks, as it really helps them stay put. The detail is certainly very pretty as well.

You can see more of Linda Jo's lovely work on her blog and on Ravelry where is BeadKnitter. You'll also find details of the stitch pattern for these socks in her Ravelry project post.

Next up are Emily's Basic Socks knit with the Discipline colorway.

These delicious socks were also knit as a holiday gift, this time for a deserving grandmother. In my mind, even the most beautiful and intricate sock pattern in the world will always have a tough time competing with a plain ol' vanilla stockinet sock. I just love how every little stitch lines up in knitterly perfection!

Emily also has a blog where you can view more of her beautiful work and she can be found as Cringer on Ravelry.

A big thank you to Linda Jo and Emily for covering four feet this Monday morning!

Both pairs are beautiful! And of course one can't go wrong with FF yarn. :-)

Beautiful socks knit with beautiful yarn. I so agree with you about stockinette stitch. Can't be beat!
