Swirl Socks - Done!
Pattern: Swirl Socks by Sulafaye
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Black Purl
Needles: US0 DPNs
Mods: When I saw this pattern, I had to cast on right away, and I wasn't going to let a silly little thing like my lack of DK-weight sock yarn stop me, so I took Sula at her word when she said it was mostly a stitch pattern and adapted it for fingering weight socks. I used the heel from Baudelaire and added the braid detail from Nancy Bush's Spey Valley socks before the picot hem. I love how the swirls break up the natural striping of the Lorna's.
Swirly goodness! [Wait, that doesn't sound right.]
How do you keep your picot hems from flaring?
