I have finished the socks for me! I did the same ribbing on the leg and top of the foot but on this sock I stopped at the toe decreases. I like it better than the first sock I did and it was much easier to just concentrate on the decreases instead of the ribbing AND decreases. I did the 3 needle bind off as well. I promise the next pair I'll try harder to do the kitchener. I have quite a bit of yarn left, hmmmm what to do.

I finished the first sock of a pair of socks for me. I used the new Ann Budd book "Getting Started Knitting Socks" and her 8 stitches per inch pattern. I used Trekking XXL yarn and a size 2 US set of Bamboo DPN needles.The first 20 rows are K2, P2 ribbing (2 inches) and then I did the leg and the top of the foot in K3, P1 ribbing. It fits well, doesn't feel loose or tight so must be perfect. I tried the kitchener join on the toe but got frustrated and gave up. The 3 needle bind off inside was fine. Then I started sewing in the ends and discovered this random floater of yarn... must have entirely skipped a needle! ARGH.
