Another Noro Sock: The Tulip Sock


I'm proud of this one, if I do say so myself.


Although it's tough to photograph well... the nice scalloped top isn't showing very well.

The stitch pattern is a variation on Dragon Skin from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury. Because the yardage of the Noro Kureyon Sock is so terrific, you will easily get a matching pair -- both pink at the top -- from one ball. It was serendipitous -- my ball was wound to start with the pink, and I think it looks like a fabulous spring blossom.

Pattern will be for sale at The Naked Sheep and The Purple Purl starting tomorrow. Suitable for sock knitters with some experience.

Dear Kate,

Those Tulip Socks are just gorgeous!

Any hope you would be teaching an advanced course on Socks, and talk about doing more complex patterns?

I really enjoyed your Socks 101 class, and would love to continue learning.

I've got to check the courses schedule at Lettuce Knit when I come back from Argentina.

Happy knitting weekend

Maria

I was in the Naked Sheep this afternoon and saw the socks, and the Coffee Morning shawl... I didn't realize you were the designer!

I've been thinking about sock knitting for quite a while, but haven't done any knitting in ages. Perhaps this summer.
