Francie Socks

Francie socks 
I've finished the Francie socks!  I knit these in Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Hush.  I fell in love with this pattern when I saw the sole of the foot.  The original pattern is designed with a different stitch for the leg - it's a tree bark texture, but the tree bark pattern seemed too organic for the more architectural foot pattern, so I knit the leg of the sock in a simple k2, p2 rib instead.   There were questions about the texture of the sole and while I can feel it on my foot when I first put on the sock, I wasn't noticing it by the time I'd gotten this morning's blog picture, so I really don't think they will bother me if I were wearing them all day.

The socks aren't difficult to knit but they are a big commitment to ribbing.  I'm currently pretty much over ribbing.  I don't really want to cast on another pair of socks right now because I don't want to knit the ribbing at the cuff, even though I usually only work 12 rounds of it on my own socks.  I think I'll wait a bit before I knit rib again.

I know that there are other ways to work a sock cuff, and I do like a nice picot hem.  It's been ages since I started a sock that way, hmmm...
