Boreal Socks

I finally finished my Boreal socks from the January installment of the Knitterai Sock Club by Janel Laidman.  I have to redo the cuff however, as it is too tight.  The directions called for the EZ sewn bind-off.  I chose to do a tubular bind-off instead, as it would be more elastic, and not as floppy as some I had seen online.  However, I knit the set-up rows with the twisted rib, and that has proven to be too tight, so I will have to remove the last few rows and knit them again.  I knit a few rows of 1×1 rib after the pattern to give the cuff a more finished look.
