Autumn Socks For Ysabeau

These were knit from Twisted Sisters Avarice (Alpaca) in colorway # 4. It took two skeins.

I started with the Colorjoy FIRST TIME TOE UP SOCK then adapted it to fit my particular ideas. It's my favorite "Vanilla Sock" recipe, and has lots of opportunity for adaptation to any size foot, baby on up to BigFoot, and for any yarn or needle size that work together.
(My adaptation this time included extra ribbing on instep, extra loose cuff, with 3 'eyelet' stitches on each side to add ribbons for fit adjustment, tab at the back to help put the socks on, ripply single crochet cast off)
She likes them :-}

Love the wavy top on the socks! I've started a new sock pattern in lime green yarn. I like the pattern on the heel, and will see if I can use it on other projects. I have the hardest time doing that. Oh! Got my invite to Ravelry!!! See you soon!
