Wendy's Toe-Up, using a broken version of Barbara Walker's Wicker Work
pattern in the ankle
Yarn: Artyarns Ultra Merino 4, grey/blue
Completed: June 30, 2007.
|A pair of socks -- yes, the
same size (this is a surprise? ;-) ).
|Ankle detail -- what I'm
calling "barley sheaves", and what is actually a mistaken transcription
of Barbara Walker's Wicker Work stitch pattern from the "Second
Treasury". No, I'm not going to tell you that the error is the
1st & 7th rows are inverted (knits/purls).
|Heel detail -- short-rowed,
|Toe detail -- provisional
cast-on & short-rowing. Note the variation in the striping
because of the short rows.
