Just finished a pair of socks for my husband. They are the Java Socks pattern from the most current issue of Knitty. They have a little two stitch cable all over them, which is good because it is more interesting to knit than just plain ribbing, but is bad because it still became kind of monotonous. The pattern is special because the decreases that happen after the heel are done across the ankle instead of down the side of the heel. The pattern is nicely written so that the decreases just become a part of the flow of the ribbing. My husband says that these socks fit better in the ankle than any others that I have made for him. I think part of this is the construction, but I also think that having an all over rib helps because it gives the fabric a lot more stretch, thus making it fit better.
