I finished these over a month ago, but have had my computer in the shop. Here are two FO pics- sorry they're not too artsy this time.
i used elastic in the top rib to keep them tight. I love 'em!
Hellz yeah! Finally, someone in knitterly cyberspace that shares my affinity for Gator football!
Can you go back and add elastic to the top of a sock? I think I might need to reinforce the top somehows.
There are several ways to do that!
I kept the top open on the inside especially for the elastic, but if you did the top the way that eunny instructed, you could still add elastic by running it through the holes and inside the sock ribbing with a large safety pin attached to the end to help you out.
If you didn't add the special holes but still turned the rib hem, use a blunt yarn needle to run two worsted-yarn size pieces of elastic into the back part of the ribbing- one on the top, and one on the bottom (since it's thin elastic).
If that still doesn't describe the way you did the ribbing, then your best bet would be to use thread that matches the color perfectly
. Use regular sized elastic, and sew it around, into the center of the band of ribbing, so that it is touching your leg when you wear the sock. That should keep the sock up, and also keep everyone from knowing that you have elastic there. Oh, and be sure to use a very soft elastic next to the skin, otherwise you might get a little rash... not the best way to show off all of that handiwork!
