Foot candy

A few months ago I was exploring perfect, charming, magical Stoke Newington and came across a sweet knitting and stationery shop, Of Cabbages and Kings. I bought a skein of Hedgehog Fibres sock weight yarn in “zephyr”.

The yarn was just too pretty to knit an exciting sock. I think of this as vanilla with sprinkles. 

The pattern was self drafted (although socks of this type are all much alike). I started with a provisional cast on, knit in rib for about an inch then had a row of k2tog, yo, and then knit another inch. Folded over, this made a lovely picot cuff with enough elasticity to stay up. 

I just love them!
