Blackberry Socks

Pattern: Swirly O from The Knitter's Book of Yarn
Yarn: Lorna's Laces in blackberry gifted by Wooly Headed
Needles: US # 1 dpn

I used a rib cuff rather than the picot. I stopped the pattern at the foot and used an eye of the partridge heel stitch. The pattern is stretchy so these would be a great gift knit. I love the feel and color of the Lorna's Laces and look forward to cooler weather so I can wear these regularly.

I know! I started a pair of socks over the weekend and yeah, it's already too hot to wear knit socks! I hadn't paid much attention to that pattern, but yours are great so I'll give it another look.
