Calypso SKYP Socks

My latest project is finished and Dave was able to help with the photography. I was waiting for the wind and the rain to stop, then realized we could just take the pictures indoors. Here be the socks!

This is the Simple SKYP Socks pattern, which I have used once before. Actually, I didn't use any of the construction details from the pattern, only the SKYP stitch. I knit the socks according to formulas and techniques that I strung together. They were made, two at a time, from the toe up, beginning with Judy's Magic Cast-on. I increased to 64 stitches, made a short row heel, knit some 2 x 2 ribbing and cast off with Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off. The yarn is from Phydeaux Designs. I have another skein of her pretty yarn left from my original order - the yarn seemed to need a simple pattern as it is quite colorful and has a lot of contrast. The SKYP stitch adds just a bit of interest without getting completely lost in all of the mad color.

The yarn is called Chaussette Sock - the colorway is Calypso
