Whirlpool Socks

I just finished a pattern called Whirlpool Socks, from Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn by Carol J. Sulcoski, published by Interweave. It has a pretty picot edge and easy pattern repeat. I used ONline Supersocke 100 superwash wool, colour #1137.

I love the patterns in this book. Unfortunately there are a number of errors, and Interweave has published a set of PDF files on their website with corrections. Their files do not include an error I found in the Whirlpool pattern, however. On page 60, under Heel Flap, 2 lines down, the pattern should read: slip 2 (0,7)

I'm beginning a new set of socks using Patons new Stretch Socks yarn.

Hi Lynn! No, my yarn was a 100 gram, 420 metre ball and it was enough. You should be fine!
