Banana Bread

You are probably wondering why this is called ‘banana bread’. When I entered these socks in the Dutchess County Fair, they were incorrectly labeled! I have to tell you these socks are the best damn loaves of banana bread my husband ever wore!
These were made on size 1 dp needles (5). I used a pattern from ‘Patternworks’ before they were sold. It is a basic sock pattern with a slip stitch heel that is so comfy! I chose to make these in crew length with a 1×1 rib. There are no seams at the toe; it is woven together with the kitchener stitch. I am working on a second pair with a cable. The yarn is ‘Socka Cotton’ in a black marl. 2 balls is enough. This yarn wears like iron! I have also used their wool and it is uber hardy! Sorry the picture is not very clear, but I am trying to get the hang of my new camera phone.
