Finally F.O.-tos



At long last, I'd like to present my Sockaplaooza 4 socks.



Pattern: Go With the Flow, Interweave, Summer 2005
Designer: Evelyn Clark
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, colorway Java
Needles: US1




I totally love them. It was absolutely serendipidous. I got my sock pal info, and her tastes jived with mine well. She wanted earth tones and she likes wool. I knew right away what socks I would make her, and it was smooth sailing from there.

It was sheer luck- I often don't like multicolored yarns along with a lacy stitch pattern, but these two didn't compete, they just worked together naturally. The lace adds a feminine but not foo-fooo softness to the earthy colors. I think the result is downright graceful, if I do say so myself.

Toot!
