Peppermint Stick Socks

My socks are apparently "Blueberries and Cream" flavored.

Since it's rarely cold enough to wear double layer socks (we still have green grass in the yard), I knew that I wouldn't make the stranded pattern throughout the entire sock. Instead, I changed to plain stripes for the foot of the sock. Also, since I generally wear clogs, I carried the stripe/swirl pattern down and made a heel flap for the sock.

Thanks for the great pattern, Tama. I've started it again as a pair of gloves, since the braid/cable/swirl pattern looked so cute when I was putting it on my hand to make sure it was still stretchy (it was).

Yarn = leftover Lorna's Laces blue and leftover unidentified white from a dyeing project.
