Noura Socks

I think it is safe at this point to reveal that I did the sock pattern for the Loopy Ewe November sock club mailing.  And this one was a fun one!  The yarn is a custom color of Bugga! from the Sanguine Gryphon.  The colorway is called Great Purple Hairstreak, and it is a vibrant combination of blue and purple.  All I could think of was glowing light — like the aurora borealis — when I saw the yarn.  I picked the name Noura for the socks.  It is an Arabic name meaning “light”.

The Noura socks are knit from the top down, starting with a fancy twisted stitch (with a touch of lace) ribbing pattern.  The ribbing transitions into columns of lace that taper to a point on the instep.  The columns transition into a subtly ribbed heel flap.

The resulting sock would also look great knit up in a solid sock yarn.  Hmmm…  Maybe I will have to start a second pair…

One last note.  This pattern is currently only available for members of the Loopy Ewe Sock Club.  Sheri will make the pattern widely available in approximately 6 months.
