Chocolate Cherry Socks

Chocolate covered cherries - that's what this yarn looks like. Sooooo - I thereby dub thee my Chocolate Cherry Socks. Yum!

CO=64 sts; K2, P2 rib cuff (3 rnds complete)

I decided to go with the elongated corded rib pattern from Charlene Schurch's book, Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm using Meilenweit Multiringel by Lana Grossa. It's fingering weight, 80% wool/20% polyamide. And yes, it's superwash, so this pair won't end up too small for my already tiny feet. As usual, they are cuff down, 2S1C, MagicLoop, Size 1 US (2.5mm) 40" Addi's {although I may switch to 47"}.

I am going to use this..

...for the SwallowTail Shawl. It's 100% Silk lace weight yarn by Claudia Hand Painted Yarns. It's called Silk Lace - Earth.
