Not-So-Secret Sliptastic Socks

I'll post more info on the accepted condo offer soon but I want to share this today.

Shannon of Unwind Yarns, whom I've spoken of before, asked me to test knit a sock pattern for her. After some technical review and then knitting, her pattern is in good shape, she'll be ready to sell it soon. That means, I now have permission to share my socks!

The pattern is called Sliptastic Socks, when she's ready, it will get added to Ravelry with purchasing information but in the meantime, if anyone is interested, you can let me know and I'll put you in touch with Shannon.

These socks are pretty and comfy and super stretchy. They would make perfect first socks because they will form around various widths. They’d also make great gift socks when you don’t have the receiver’s foot handy!

The yarn is Unwind Yarns Shiraz, also by Shannon. When she sent it to me to test knit with she said it didn't have a name, it was the "luck of the pot" which sounds like a great name to me.

I'm really surprised how similar these turned out, I didn't do anything to make them match up. -DFly

I like the sock and especially like the color.
