Last week I managed to finish another great looking pair of socks - I'm calling them the "Purple Pinstripe Knock-Offs"... since they're similar to the "Pinstripe" free pattern on Ravelry. I haven't actually looked at the pattern, but saw many many of them go by in the Addicted to Sock Knitting group on Facebook in the last few months. I had planned on just doing these ones plain, but then when it came time to switch from Ribbing to the leg I thought - what the Heck! Be adventurous, and decided to throw in a column of slipped stitches for fun. I'm not sure if it's the way the Pinstripe Pattern did it, but I do like the way it looks!
