Brown Trenched Spiral Socks (2010)


Brown spiral trench socks Pattern:  Hybrid!  See notes, below.

  Trekking Pro Natura, (approx 340m  / 370yds)
Method:  Hand knitting
Completed:  April 26 2010.

These are my standard socks — toe up, following Wendy’s Toe-Up pattern, and Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Arch expansion/plain heel.   This is a second pair following the ankle design for which I was inspired by the “Whirlpool socks” from Laura Nelkin (in “Knitting Socks With Handpainted Yarn”).   I liked the principle of the swirl, to help break up some of the striping from the variegated yarn, without having the colour variations arguing with (or obscuring) the stitch pattern.
