These socks are the May pattern and are available exclusively through the Black Sheep Hoppy Feet Sock Club until August 2015.

Tulips are such a reminder of spring for me. When I found this delightful tulip shaped cable, I just had to incorporate it into a sock. These cables wend their way from toe to cuff, each one blooming merrily as you work your way up the sock.

I hope you enjoy knitting these socks as much as I did!
