I thought after the last pair of bright fantastic socks, I'd whip up something a bit more sedate. Well, not too sedate - that's no fun.
I grabbed a gorgeous skein of Vesper Sock Yarn in the "In the Wildwood" colorway that Claudia gave me for my birthday. I wanted a pattern that would highlight the pretty stripes that form when it's knit up. It also can't be super complicated since it's a road project.
I used the pattern filter on the Ravelry and came across the Traffic Island Socks. Cute chevron stripes and a two line stitch pattern. Easy as pie. I'm just using the stitch pattern and 64 stitches, we're going back to the short row heel and toes this time around. Flaps just aren't me.
