Highland Schottische Kilt Hose

This is another pair of socks from Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. A series from this book is in the works but I keep veering off the path, distracted by other patterns and ideas.
The yarn is Sheldridge Farm's Soft Touch Heather in colour Opal. My lousy flash photograph does not do the yarn justice; it is a lovely multicolor blend yet it reads as a solid. It is a bit heavier than some sock yarns so I used a US size 2 needle. I modified the pattern by starting at the toe, shortening the leg and removing the calf shaping.

I really love these socks - the pattern looks amazing, and the yarn you've been using for them seems to be the perfect one! Great job!
