White Birch Fiber Socks (2008)
|Pattern: Wendy’s Toe-Up/Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed master pattern for the arch, and Barbara Walker’s “Gothic Lattice” for the ankle patterning.
Yarn: White Birch Fiber — Summer Grasses
Method: Hand knit
Completed: November 19, 2008.
The yarn is quite nice to work with — smooth, and just enough colour variation to be interesting without bad striping or pooling.
If I had actually swatched with this yarn before knitting, I might not have done an ankle pattern that was so heavily purled. I find the reverse stockinette parts pattern differently (with the colours) than the stockinette, so the ankle looks a little out of place with the main sock.
