Darned in the last end of my Bird Foot sock this evening. The patterns are adapted from Anatolian Knitting Design and the main ones are called Bird Foot and the 2 on the feet are both Bird Wing.

The Foot is on the ankle section and the Wings are on the feet!

I enjoy playing with variegated yarns and turning them ito something different.

Istanbul is like that:

A variegated yarn and a solid (this one is also a mix of the Anatolian patterns (the ankle one is called "Hook").

Funky Zebra is like that

A self- patterning yarn with a solid.

Mexican Dance is like that:

Another self- patterning yarn in mosaic squares.

Parquet is like that:

A hand painted yarn knit in modules and strips

And Bird Foot is too:

A variegated yarn knit with a solid (sister to Istanbul)

And through the wonderful magic of Photoshop, we have blue bird feet:

Fuchsia bird feet:

And purple bird feet:

I love Photoshop!

but I love knitting more!!!
