Up-Down Spiral Sox

Knitting
May 2000
DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) ?
12 stitches and 14 rows = 2 inches in in slip-stitch pattern, unblocked
US 5 - 3.75 mm
427 yards (390 m)
7.5" (8") foot circumference, 9.25" (10") length

These comfortable roll-top socks are an adventure in unusual construction: they can be knitted from the toe up or the cuff down, and they feature an "afterthought heel" worked from held stitches after the rest of the sock is completed.  To make the mirrored spiral, the color pattern is worked in the opposite direction on the second sock.
