As I chose a pattern for this gorgeous yarn (Malabrigo Sock - Arbol, in case anyone's wondering), I realized that because my mind was so full of details related to multiple work obligations and home repairs, I needed a simple sock to work on. Anything fiddly at this point, might just put me over the edge. Thinking about it, I put together the elements I like best for wearability and durability in a sock and so far, I think it's ideal, or as my blog title indicates, the "perfect sock."
It's nothing fancy, a cuff that's a basic k2p2 rib, but with twisted knit stitches (i.e., through the back loop), and then a basic k3p1 rib for the rest of the sock (w/a basic short row heel and soon a kitchenered toe). There's absolutely not a fancy thing about it -- in fact it's so plain, I'm thinking of adding a picot edging to the top of the cuff just to girl it up a bit. Still, it's been a very satisfying knit. The fit so far is perfect and I'm seriously in love with the color. So happy to have one simple thing in my life right now!
