Do you feel lucky?
You can see the general squinkiness of this stitch pattern as it sits there in all its bumpy glory. I can't help but wonder if working a garter ridge at the top of the cuff instead of the ribbing might allow the sock to fall into the points and valleys that the stitch pattern makes and take out some of the preblocking squinkiness. Has anyone tried this? Did it work? Did the universe come crashing down around you? Is there any reason I shouldn't try this? Let me know, and by the way - the word of the day is Squinkiness - please try to use it correctly in a sentence.
