Pussy Willow Socks

 

I just finished knitting the second sock in Green Planet Yarn’s “Socks for All” sock club.  The second sock we were “assigned” was the Pussy Willow Sock by Cat Bhordi.  The pattern can be found in the book Sock Knitting Master Class by Ann Budd.  I used a Malabrigo sock yarn in color Turner (851) that was new to me, but is destined to become a favorite.  The Malabrigo Sock yarn knits up beautifully and is really comfortable to wear.  I wish I could say that I was as in love with this pattern as I am with the yarn I used!   Although I like the finished sock, the sock was really pretty dull to knit except for  the unusual moccasin toe which I’ll definitely repeat on other socks.   The sock starts at the toe with a band of stitches that is rotated an inch or so in to make a strip that crosses the tip of the toe.  From there, the pattern is straight knitting with a zig-zag line of holes artfully placed up the leg.  The sock finishes with a simple rolled top.
