These are my Dorothy In Oz socks and I love them.
The Mercury Socks pattern by Kim Drotar has been very popular but I've only just got round to knitting it myself. It was a change knitting a lace pattern. I used Giddy Yarns in Helen's Dorothy colourway. It was a dream to knit with but in hindsight I should have used a contrast for the heels and toes as the colour pools quite a bit where the stitch count changes. A yarn will only provide a constant pattern whilst the number of stitches remain the same, once the number of stitches change the colours in the yarn will work up in a different way.
I love this yarn, inspired by Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, it contains the blue and white of her dress, the red of her ruby slippers and speckles of green and yellow to represent the Emerald City and the yellow brick road, so I've decided to call these socks my Dorothy In Oz socks. I think the yarn would look really pretty knit up in a plain stocking stitch too.
These are another pair of socks which are for me, I'm getting quite selfish with my sock knitting just lately, I think that's what becomes of knitting sixteen pairs of socks in one year and only two of those pairs finding their way to my own sock drawer. It will be nice to have some brand new pairs of socks to warm my feet this winter.
