They're done and they're mine! They are a bit looser than I like, but not enough to part with them. I love the colors and the stitch pattern.
Ah yes, the pattern. So many of my readers asked about the pattern. I got the pattern from Linda nine months ago. At the time she was calling it a test knit. I emailed to find out if the pattern was ever published, and didn't get an answer, so there is no way to share this copyrighted pattern. Sorry.
If you are an experienced sock knitter who would just like a clue about the stitch pattern, I can do that with a clear conscience. It's a variation on Feather and Fan.
The pattern repeat is 15 stitches, 6 rows.
Row 1: k, ssk, ssk, k, yo, k, yo, k, yo, k, yo, k, k2tog, k2tog, k
Row 2: knit
Row 3: same as row 1
Rows 4,5,6: knit
These Opal Lollipop 1010 socks look washed out next to that bright Tutti Frutti, but they're a pretty pastel.
No pattern for these. I'm knitting them plain stockinette with some ribbing down the sides to help the fit.
They're destined to be a Christmas gift for Gail, Sunny and Pappy's doggy school teacher.
