These are my Salzburg socks.  I designed and knit them around Christmas, during a flood, and well into February.  (They went through a few iterations and color changes.  They were originally pink!)  Like my Danube socks, these are based on Austrian/Bavarian twisted stitch designs, although the main cable on these socks is not a traditional one.  I really love them, especially the end of the main motif before the toe.


Top-down, size 1 (2.25mm) needles, standard heel flap and toe, Panda Silk yarn.  Polar bear rug not included. 


Yarn Forward is a British magazine that can be found at some major US bookstores or ordered from their website. I’ve picked up a few issues from my local Barnes and Noble, although they run a few issues behind.  This is my first published pattern and I’m very excited!
