As you can see, I reversed the colors so that these are mirror images of one another: It is exceptionally difficult to take a photo of the back of one’s own legs. I got a lot of this – ha! I finally asked for help. I really like the back of these socks, the way the pyramid heel handles the decreases and then the ribbing grows out of a triangle. So attractive.I used Simply Sock Yarn Solids for this in Wheatgrass, Brick, and Turquoise. This yarn is great for colorwork. It has a nice tight twist, three plies, and some nylon for strength. It comes in 64 colors, and the put up is only 50 grams so you can buy smaller amounts for colorwork.I’m very pleased with how these came out. I’ll be keeping an eye out for new pattern releases from Lorilee that use this technique.

Our Paths Cross socks are done!
I finished my Lorilee Beltman Our Paths Cross socks! These are so cool. I just love the vertical stranding technique. It isn’t stranded colorwork, it isn’t intarsia, and it isn’t duplicate stitch. It’s way better, in my opinion.
