Persephone's Socks

Pattern: Persephone's Socks by Lori Law
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Velvet Leaf
Needles: US1
Size: to fit a womens size 9.

Comments: I have no idea why these took so long to come off the needles - they are a simple and straightforward knit provided you don't do like I did and pick up way too many stitches for the gusset ;) I blame it on the fact that I typically do not knit top down socks because I always get paranoid that I'll run out of yarn.

These socks have a neat construction with a shaped arch - they fit nicely - and when laid flat, they actually look like a foot with an arch! If you're looking for something a little different in sock knitting, you should definitely give these a try :)
