Dead Sleep Project

Last month someone posted a purse project that had been completed earlier but fit her P.D. James book. Well, I'm following in those footsteps this month with a dual-duty project. I always have socks on my needles and I just completed a pair. While I didn't make them specifically for Whoduknit, I think Jordan would be pleased to wear them.

The yarn is Socks that Rock Covelite. The color combination is an unusual reddish brown with purple stripes and white accents. Someone with an artistic eye (Jordan and her camera, right?) would be drawn to these colors. The yarn is mediumweight, perfect for tramping around remote locations in heavy shoes. The cable pattern makes them nice and cushy as well.

I worked out this particular cable pattern on my own, but I'm sure it can be found in a stitch dictionary somewhere. Enjoy the pretty colors! Those of you on Ravelry, more pictures are posted there (my Ravelry ID is "seamless").

Very nice Sharon! And it's perfectly fine to use a project you are already knitting for a book project and I do think Jordan would love them!
