The lovely colors of the Wooly Wonka Fibers Superwash Bamboo Sock Yarn reminded me of sea grasses. So I came up with a unique stitch pattern that conveyed that same feeling of sea grasses gently swaying in the ocean breeze. "Vallisneria Socks" feature cable ribbing that flows gently into the twisted stitch pattern, which is carried down the leg onto the instep. The cuff to toe pattern is suitable for the adventurous beginner through experienced knitter. The design is easily adapted for either the 2-circular needle or magic loop techniques.

I've been a 'crafter' all my life, and especially enjoy fiber arts. My first professional design was published in 2005, and since then I've had my designs published in knit.wear, Knitscene, Creative Knitting, Love of Knitting, Knitcircus, Twist Collective, Three Irish Girls Yarns, Universal Yarns, and Cascade Yarns, along with several books by DRG Publications. When not knitting, thinking about knitting or dreaming up new designs, I love spending time with my husband and pets, in the high plains of Colorado where we live.
