November sockness

I have had my eye on the Japanese stitch dictionaries for a long time and had originally planned to buy 3 or 4 of them - especially the one that has 1000 in the title!

After close inspection thanks to Marcia at Needlearts Books, the only one I bought was the white one with 250 in the title. It is chock full of inspiration and my November sock is inspired by several of the lace and cable patterns in the book.

With a couple of modifications, I have something that I am really pleased with. I hope you will be too.

Presenting Lotus in its original pumpkiny state:
And in Photoshopped green
and mauve
The yarn is Meilenweit Seta Cashmere and is really yummy to work with. I had about 9 grams left of a 50g ball when done to fit my size 7 1/2 feet

Love it! Do you have the pattern available elsewhere?

I can't wait to work on this one too. And the renos are going great guns! It's looking really nice!

Hi Robyn,

That is a beautiful sock! I love the heel, too. I just might have to get my hands on one or two of those stitch dictionaries!

Splendid! I love the stitch pattern. Very striking and the colour is right up my alley.
