One gift down. Lots more to do!
These are what I’m calling the Hippie Spice Socks. They’re going to our daycare lady for her birthday this week. No, she’s not a hippie. I just find the name funny since it’s a combination of Market Spice and what I think of when I hear "flower power."
Pattern: Market Spice from Wollemeise. Follow the link for a free pattern.
Yarn: Flower Power from Socks that Rock, Blue Moon Fiber Arts and a bit of Dream in Color Smooshy for the toes.
Modifications: I decided not to follow the slip stitch pattern all the way down the foot because it might be too irritating when you wear socks. I hate having something with texture across the top of my foot, it always feels like my shoes are laced too tightly. These are made to fit a women’s size 9 foot. I ran out of yarn right at the toes of the second sock. I ripped out the toe of the first and knit them both in the Dream in Color yarn that I had left over. I think the colorway is Stormy Skies or something like that. The ball band is long long gone.
I think this photo shows off the colors better. I took the picture thinking you’d be able to see the texture on the leg better also. I can’t wait to wrap these up in a pretty package. Our daycare lady wears crocs most of the time and I think these will help keep her feet warm when she’s outside with the kids.
