Uli’s Summertime Socks

Hooray! My KSKS Pal received her package — my pal was Uli of Uli’s Needlework World!

I’ve been reading Uli’s blog for at least a year. That made it both easier and harder to figure out what to add to her bag, but I had a great time picking items out and I think she enjoys it.

Now that Uli has received her package, I can release the pattern that I wrote up for her kit. I used her questionnaire answers to design the sock, so it is worked cuff-down with a short row heel (backwards yarnover method) and looks great in hand-painted yarns.

My version was knit in yarn that Dave Daniels of Cabin Cove dyed — you should definitely visit his shop, Cabin Cove Mercantile. The yarn was great to work with.

The pattern can be found here. It is currently only available as a PDF. If you do use the pattern, please let me know if you run into any problems!

    When the sock pictured loaded up, I was impressed with the pattern. And, wow, that was the yarn I did! That is SO cool. The details of your sock are great!
