Swirl Socks - Done!

Swirl Sock



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?

Woo hoo! Such lovely details, I'm really digging the braid at the hem. I'm so glad you enjoyed them!

Has anyone told you lately that you are a machine??

Yum! Those socks are terrific... They really show off the yarn with a great pattern that doesn't distract from the yarn itself!

I'm off to bookmark the pattern so that if I ever get time to knit again, (LOL) those socks are on my list!
