Shelton's Folly is a tribute to the wonderful lady who introduced my happy fingers to the world of fiber crafts. Even though she never knit a stitch in her life, as she was a dedicated crocheter, she inspired my adventures in knitting which led to my eventual obsession with socks. These socks are available in three sizes - small, medium, and large - for ladies, but could easily be adapted for other sizes by adding or subtracting the six stitch repeat as needed. Pattern is written and charted for 2 circular needles, but can easily be adapted for any technique. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should know basic cuff down sock construction. GAUGE 32 stitches x 44 rows = 4 inches or 8 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Women's Small, Medium, Large SUGGESTED YARN 400 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Miss Babs Yummy Superwash Sock & Baby Yarn - 2 ply COLORWAY Squash Blossom

My fiber adventures began several years ago when my friend and neighbor Mrs. Shelton taught me how to crochet. Of course I could not handle the teeny-tiny hook and thread she worked, but her enthusiasm was infectious so I persisted and could feel something special beginning to take root. This love affair with the hook soon led me to the needles and a serious love of knitting - especially socks, they rule my world!
