Socks from a jumper

I do love the way knitting ideas can be re-used and re-purposed. The stitch pattern in these started from an idea for waist shaping a jumper. Now it's going to be socks.

I also get to play with my new favourite technique - tubular cast on in the round. It's so much neater than the cable or backwards loop cast ons I used to use.

The wool is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Red Rover. I'm thinking of calling them Rib goes a Roving socks... but  Martian Rivers also sounds pretty apt.
