Wednesday of Sock Week

Wednesday brings another pair of socks knit with Simply Socks Yarn Company's Poste Yarn Striping Sock.

  Simply Socks Yarn Co, Ashikaga Park Striped Socks

This time in the Ashikaga Park color - dark gray, light gray, and lavender stripes. These I have worn a few times, and I love how the yarn has really softened up after washing. See Monday's post for more about my love of this yarn.

The leg is knit with a 3x1 ribbing that continues on the top of the foot. The heels are worked with a heel flap, and I don't mind how the stripes look with this construction. I started the heel flap at the beginning of a stripe. After I completed the heel turn, I broke the yarn and advanced it so the stripes continue in pattern on the top of the foot.  Thanks to Susan B Anderson for this nifty idea.
