Travelers Socks

I knit these socks about a year ago. They are my very first Malabrigo socks. I fell in love with Malabrigo sock yarn while knitting these socks. And fell more deeply in love after I washed and wore the socks. They are so soft and non-scratchy.

The pattern is Traveler's socks by Nancy Bush. I have large, wide feet and ankles. I cast on and knit the cuff according to the pattern but omitted the long, plain leg and went directly into the heel, gusset and foot. This gave me the appropriate number of stitches to accomodate my sizable feet. I loved knitting the cuff pattern and the "clock" that runs down the sides of the foot. Lot's of fun traveling stitch patterns.
