An Update on Fisherwoman Socks

Several years ago I made a pair of socks for my friend, Jean, who is a fisherwoman and a talented potter. The picture at the bottom is the original pair. At the time I just added the Fish Scale Lace pattern to my standard sock. I kept thinking that it needed a little something else but didn’t come across anything that suited my fancy. I’ve looked at stitch pattens many times over the years since with the sock in mind but never found just the right thing until this past week.  Now I present to you the complete Fisherwoman Sock pictured on top in Whimsical Colors silky merino light in Silver Fox.  It is knit from the top down on two circular needles and combines Little Scales Stitch with Fish Scale Lace to make a hearty but feminine sock for girls who like to fish, girls who like fish, and girls who like cool hand knit socks. The pattern will be available soon in my Ravelry store. It's on Libby's to do list. She proofreads all of my patterns and I have to say she is so good at it and makes such great suggestions that she is worth waiting for.
