Snake Skin Socks Progress

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I almost didn't do this sock - the KAL pattern for August and September for the Six Socks KAL (see button on side bar for more information). Then after I saw some of the progress photos on the group site, that inspired me to search through my stash until I foundt this yarn - a beautiful colorway from Koigu - shades of brown, a bright peach, purple and lavendar, and olive green. Now these are probably going to be my favorite socks so far!!! I learned from this that I shouldn't rule out a pattern until I've at least given it a try with a swatch or something. I ordered some plain brown from Koigu for the heel and toe of the socks to give a little contrast and interest and make sure that I had enough yarn. Also, since the yarn is100% wool, I am adding brown "Wooly Nylon" to the heel and toe to give it reinforcement. These are going to be warm and very comfortable socks for this winter! Many thanks to the group designer for this beautiful pattern!

I am new to finding patterns of this type.

Some of the ladies at the local senior center would like to make socks that are unusual.

PLEASE forward the pattern for your beautiful "Snake Skin Socks".
