Adele and I have finished another pair of socks! These are for ME.
My sister gave me the book Sock Knitting Master Class: Innovative Techniques + Patterns from Top Designers for Christmas and I had been wanting to try some of the great looking patterns in there.
I chose Slip-n-Slide by Chrissy Gardiner to go with this Berroco Sox yarn because it has long slipped stitches that help disguise the striping in the yarn.
I like that the pattern continues down the heel flap.
They were a pretty quick knit and I learned a new technique to get the little butterfly looking stitches that go down the front and back of the sock.
I am eager to knit some of the other socks in this "master class" book. I'm sure I'll learn more fun and interesing knitting techniques as I work my way through the book.
