Simple. Natural. Traditional. Reinforced.
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister


These socks were knit using Fortissima brand reinforcement for the heels and toes. I simply held the yarn and the reinforcement together and knit as one.

It will be interesting to see how these socks wear over time, to determine if the reinforcement is worth the trouble and expense.

I worked the lacey rib as such:

Row 1: Slip 1, k2, psso, p1
Row 2: K1, yo, k1, p1
Rows 3 and 4: K3, p1

This is a nice little rib that I often use.
