RAVELRY FEATURED PATTERN 1-15 JUNE 2010

Designed with Margaret Ruble (Ravelry: senjiva), these socks are named after the Sanskrit word for bamboo shoot -- the glorious Lemongrass colorway is a reminder that summer will soon be here. Featuring a linen stitch heel, a leafy lace pattern up the front and several bamboo-like stitch motifs, not to mention what we call “the dragon toe,” these socks are well-suited for summer sandal time.

(The dragon toe is a leaf-like lace shape over the big toe: let your fun summer toenail polish peep through! At the time of writing, Shannon’s sporting jade green toenails, for example).

Sample knit and modeled by Margaret, photography and initial design concept by Shannon. Tech editing by Kate Atherley and Alexandra Virgiel.
