The Mudslide Socks

So did you hear about the Tour-de-Sock?  It was a fund-raising competition involving sock knitting.  (This year’s is nearly complete, but it is sounding like it might be happening again next year!)  I was the designer for the Stage Six sock.  What did I come up with?  The Mudslide Socks!

I love these socks.  Knit in Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! (I am so sad that The Sanguine Gryphon will be no longer) from the top down with twisted stitches and cables.  What could be better?

The fact that the pattern is unisex, for one.  I wrote up the pattern in 4 sizes, and since Bugga! is on the heavier side, if you chose to knit these socks as written in a finer gauge yarn, well, instant new sizes!

Cabled heel flaps make me irrationally happy.  I am strange like that.

Currently this pattern is exclusive to Tour-de-Sock participants.  I will offer it for sale early in 2012.
