I am truly in awe of someone who can create something as delightful as this (and useful, and warm!) from yarn! I'm merely a wordsmith. That's but nothing compared with someone who can use knitting needles so expertly! Well done!

Lisa

These are absolutely beautiful! I've tried my hand at knitting socks and actually completed one pair, but they aren't anything as nice as these. You have inspired me to try another pair!

Perfect for spring, just as the willows begin to change color and spring to life!

Francesca

They are lovely. The yarn is lovely, too, and the color variation does not obscure the pattern, like variegated yarns sometimes do.

Perfect - I was just starting to look for a new sock pattern, so now I shall try yours. Thank you!

carole

They are really beautiful socks, well done!
My daughter (11) asked me yesterday to make her a pair, I have only made plain ones before so I may give these a go as the pattern doesn't look too difficult.

Jeanne

Beautiful - really gorgeous! Thanks so much - can't wait to try them!

Fiberjoy

A new sock pattern!!! :-) I'll be printing this one out for sure, thanks for sharing.
Your socks turned out wonderful!

Funny how a change of yarn color can make a pattern look different. The light green originals looked a bit more delicate. The addition of a couple more rows in the cuff balances out the overall look.

I appreciate your cuff note, that's the type of thing I forget. The way you designate WLP rows is great; clear without cluttering up lots of space.
Overall, the pattern writing looks like a smashing success. (Mind you I haven't gone over it with proofreader's eyes.)

Claire

Well done - they are lovely. I am beyond impressed at someone who can devise their own pattern. They will be my project for next winter.
