Princess Sole sock done

I finished the first Princess Sole sock with Socks That Rock wool in Peaseblossom. I used the baby cable rib stitch from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. I started purling all the stitches after knitting the heel flap, substituting SSP for SSK and P2tog for k2tog. I knitted the top of the toe and purled the bottom until the last couple of rows where I knitted both. I wanted to be able to graft the toe with the stitches purl to purl. I find that this sock is much more comfortable underfoot. I guess that I have ultra sensitive feet. I'll be making all of my socks this way.

They look wonderful, and as someone who has the same sensative feet, I am DEFINATELY going to give this a try!

So you purled the part under the heel and under the toes?

Wow, these socks look absolutely fantastic - I so love the pattern you've been using, I guess I'll have to get this book for myself soon! And the color of the yarn is so pretty too! Awesome job you did!

I like those socks. I see what you mean about the "princess" soles; might have to try that once, just to see how I like it. Thank you for sharing that on my blog (and for visiting).

Your dogs, incidentally, are beautiful!
