Durum Socks

I just posted a new pattern to Ravelry.  
A lovely, lacy pair of socks.

They are knit with Socks that Rock medium weight yarn.  
I love this yarn.  It is so creatively dyed.  

I wanted a little lace in a heavier weight sock that could be worn through the winter.  
These socks fit that desire.  

They are knit in a sport weight yarn and the eyelet portions of the lace add style 
without being too "airy".  They also have a neat shadow wrap short row heel with a little extra stockinette shaping around the Achilles tendon for fit and wear.

I hope you like them.

Styrax Cowl

This is the latest pattern I've posted to Ravelry.

Made with one skein of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed

It knits up really fast and can be made with just one skein of LionBrand Cashmere.
