Iris Garden Socks for Six Sox KAL Finished

The new sock pattern is going to be published tomorrow and these are done just under the wire! The second sock is much larger than the first because I was trying new techniques. Learned a lot and love the pattern. They will be quite warm as they are stranded. Posted by Picasa

Iris Garden Sock in Progress

From the Six Sox KAL, the Iris Garden sock, knit in white Opal and, appropriately, Purple Iris Lorna's Laces! I've had the ya rn forever after buying it because I love iris. But I just knew it would pool and have been trying to find an appropriate pattern for it, and this will do. That is pooling going on in the foot - not stripes.

Knit with #1 dpns toe up and afterthought heel. Notice the braid around the top edge. Quite a lovely pattern indeed. Posted by Picasa
