It is serendipity that I desired to rework these two children's sock designs in doubled Cascade Yarns Eco+ yarn, on the 10th anniversary of their conception, for their publication in the Fall 2002 (#8) issue of my Heels and Toes Gazette. I designed them for charity knitting, but they also make great last-minute holiday gifts - thick for quick knitting and warmth, colorful so that kids will want to wear them. The twisted rib stitch pattern pops out, like elongated popcorns. It stands up well, on its own and requires no ribbing, unless you desire one. The Eye of Partridge stitch pattern is enhanced by adding a second color, which brings out its almost houndstooth appearance.
