The right tool for the job

Okay. It's time to break down and spend the money on a pair of sock blockers for photography purposes. How do I know? Because I just took a photo of a sock with a cheese grater inside it.

Sock for the Cure

At least that photo turned out better than the one of a sock with the DVD remote control in it.

If you like the waffle texture on the non-ribboned portion of the cuffs, it's ridiculously easy: Knit 3 rounds, then work (K1, P1) rib on the 4th. The original pattern called for seed stitch, but that sounded like way to much purling.

I have a friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. The link to the pattern does not work. Do you know how to get the pattern for these socks?
