Rushing Rivulets

Last week while I was on vacation, I started a new pair of socks. hmmm...I guess tomorrow it will be 2 weeks. Anyway...they are finished. Cristi wasn't sure about this yarn when I got it. It wasn't super soft in the hank...but it knits beautifully and feels GREAT! I can't wait for sock weather!!!! These are the Rushing Rivulet pattern in New Pathways for Sock Knitters Book 1 . This is a super easy to remember 4 stitch 6 row pattern and I loved working on it.
Pattern: Rushing Rivulets
Yarn: Yarn Pirate - Superwash BFL - Booty Club Color - Calamity
Sockitechture: Riverbed Master Pattern. Whirlpool toe, reinforced heel, picot cuff

I cast on for this at knitting and didn't do the math, so I just knit to the number of stitches I would usually use. The joy of negative ease...they are a little too wide, so I shortened them. they look short, but they fit perfectly!!!! The Riverbed architecture uses arch increases along the sole of your foot and it really hugs your foot. I love these. I may rip out the bind off and do it again, but I doubt it. The BO is loose, but still a little tight to get them on without a good tug, but once one they are beautiful.

Now...back to the Boyfriend socks so that I can start another project (I am not allowing myself to start anything until those socks are finished...and maybe another item too, I don't know...what do you think??)
