Urban Rustic Socks

The pattern for the Urban Rustic Socks is now available in my Ravelry store (see link in sidebar). These thick, cushy socks, sized for both women and men, are designed for wear inside boots or as "house" socks, although I find they fit quite well inside my clogs. The fact that the patterning terminates on the top of the instep helps to reduce bulk in the foot area. They're quick, fun knit with the horseshoe cables and seeded rib keeping things interesting. I chose to work the instep decreases on the top of the foot rather than down the sides, giving a neat tapered look to an otherwise rugged design.

We had a huge dump of snow late on Boxing Day, so we're spending today digging out and warming up with Carrot Orange soup and scones. Any special plans (knitting or otherwise) for the New Year?
