Visions of Sugarplums Sock Collection
The first design is Visions of Sugarplums. Cables twist back and forth down the length of the sock, reminiscent of peppermint twists. The background formed between the cables remind me of bon bons, making a sweet, yet calorie free tribute to the Sugar Plum Fairy. Knit in DK or Sport weight yarn at 6 stitches to the inch in stockinette stitch (I used size US 2.5/3.0 mm to get gauge), these socks work up quickly. This design might be just what you're looking for to whip up a quick gift. (Shown in Woolarina Wooly Medium Sock Yarn in Yarn 4 Socks Sock Club exclusive colorway.)
The second design is New Fallen Snow. These socks look like fresh snow in the early morning hours, when it has been shaped into fluffy peaks by only the wind. A repetitive design, this is perfect for a portable sock project. These socks are knit in Fingering weight yarn to a gauge of 8 stitches per inch on US 1's (2.25 mm). (Shown in Louet Gems Fingering Weight in the Cream colorway.)
Perfect for a last minute gift, or for getting a jump on next year's knitting, these socks are fun to knit and easy to wear.
This sock collection was the pattern for The Yarn 4 Socks Sock Club in December of 2008.
