New Sock Pattern

I have finished the Herbal Socks and finally written the pattern. It is downloadable at my site. The St. John's Wort pattern stitch looks very nice with handpaints that have very small repeats. One new wrinkle I tried with this pattern was to knit my gusset sts in a twisted rib. This firmed the gusset nicely and I plan to use this again.

I really like this Opal Rainforest sock yarn. The thicker stripes combined with the tweedy effect is rich looking. I'm never disappointed in Opal yarn.

Enjoy the pattern and please email me if you have any problems with it.

I have a pair of socks on the needles in this exact yarn - isn't it great!!!! I need to finish the 2nd sock - it's been on the needles for so long I'm embarassed to say.

I like your pattern, mine is just plain knitting. I like the texture to yours, really plays well with the tweedy colors in the yarn. Looks terrific!
