Justice's Christmas Socks

More socks!  I didn't want them all to have the same pattern, but I did want to stick with the ribbing theme.  The basic theory to Justice's rib is K1, P1 on the top of the foot for 5 rows, knit one row, then P1, K1 on the top for 5 rows, then knit one row and start with the K1,P1 rib again.  I love how stretchy they turned out.

I had remembered to take a picture of it in the ball.

I started these sock over three times, until I found a pattern I thought the color variation looked good in.

In the end, I think the ribbing and colors worked well together and it almost looks like it stripes.


There was really only pooling on the gusset/heel turn.
