A New Pair of Pink Socks, Because There is No Such Thing as Too Many Pink Socks!

I finished the second sock from the Twisted Flower Sock Pattern over the weekend and here they are in there damp, blocking glory. All the details: Cookie A's Twisted Flower Sock Pattern knit on US 1's in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Nearly Solid Pale Pink.

I modified the heel for a standard heel stitch heel flap instead of continuing the lace down the heel flap as the pattern is written for. This also modified the stitch count for the heel flap, heel turn, gusset and foot section of the sock because I have narrow feet. Other than that, I pretty much followed the pattern. It is a well written pattern and the charts are clear and easy to read. The one thing that isn't noted in the pattern (and to be fair, I've never seen it noted in any pattern), is that when you make a YO after a purl stitch, you should wrap the YO backwards or it will be very small. Then when you work the following row and come to the YO, you'll need to change the stitch mount before you work the stitch or you'll twist the YO and make it small again. It sounds like a lot to remember, but it's not hard and a backwards wrapped YO looks funny enough on the needle that you'll automatically slow down when you come to it.

It is beautiful and I love that red/pink colour. And the pattern is beautiful and I think the pattern can also be worked on a sweater also

I've never seen that instruction about a YO after a purl in a pattern, but I did read about it here:
