Design Inspiration: Dye Job, cont.

A while back I started some socks with some gorgeous glacier colored yarn from one of my Indie Dyer supporters, WN Yarns. I tell ya, these socks just flew off my needles. Between watching the yarn progress in its colors and developing a pretty easy but still engaging pattern, these were a super fast knit. Thought everyone would like to see the finished articles for themselves!

Here they are! I’m really loving the opposing wavy lines that suggest the moraine tracks of a glacier. Looks complicated? Actually, not at all! No cables, only decreases and YOs. The pattern is only on the front of the sock as I mentioned before, cuz that’s how glaciers roll. Or slide. Or grind on. Or whatever.

And here it is from the back. Simple stockinette which complements the front pattern panel. Gosh, I love this yarn; have I said that already, lol? Well, I do!

If you’re interested in knitting these, you can find the pattern in my Ravelry shop: Glacier Socks. They are available in sizes S, M, L and XL and are knit top down with a standard heel flap. Of course, you don’t HAVE to knit them in glacier colors or with the contrast cuff and heel. They would look great in solids and tonals as well as somewhat variegated yarn. If you do want to knit them with this yarn, (as of this writing) Wendy still has some of this gorgeous stuff in stock.

Psst: I was very taken with this wavy stitch pattern…I continue to play around with its possibilities…
