Oh, for the love of paisley! We did the pillows. Then we did the cowl, and now we have paisley socks. We are crazy for paisley! I love paisley because you can mix up color in wonderful ways, make them less flashy, for a more classic, subdued look, or work up in neons for a wild paisley presence. Paisley is timeless. It just never gets old. Duplicate st in at least one color for the paisley center. But you needn't stop there. Add more colors, if you'd like, for a more complex-looking paisley print on your socks. These were fun to knit. So much fun, in fact, that not only did I knit the second sock without coming up for air,but also I was ready to start a third!

I am Deborah. I am fortunate to be able to spend my days doing the things I love most in life: knitting, sewing, designing, cooking, baking, reading and writing. I am trying to learn, with an open mind, as much as I can from this life without having to repeat my mistakes or the mistakes of my parents.
Some people see a gorgeous sunset and photograph it. Others paint it. I knit it. Fiber and fabric are my media. Knitting the sunset makes it mine.
