Black Bunny Socks

Diagonal Cross Rib Socks - Verbena Black Bunny

It has been awhile since I've completed a pair of socks and these may be my favorite yet. It could be the fact that I benefited from someone de-stashing on Ebay (I jumped on this yarn!), maybe it is the fit, it is probably because both socks are finished -yay! I just grafted the second toe while waiting for my daughter to get home from a late movie. Oh, I barely had a smidge of yarn left over - I was sweating it!

Sock particulars:

Pattern: Diagonal Cross Rib Socks - Favorite Socks 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave

These socks are adorable! (You must have JUST posted this...I am on the ball tonight!)

I don't think I've ever seen this pattern before. You do lovely work. And I guess we have Bugg and her late movie to thank for a late night Finished Object.

(Which brightened up my evening, as I sit here watching a fascinating program on the History Channel about Vlad the Impaler.)

Very nice socks! I love that yarn. It looks like they could become your "favorite jeans" socks. I haven't seen that pattern before either. Hopefully I can pick up that book sometime.
