I recently had the pleasure of test knitting Psychedelia for Melissa Goodale over at Stick Chick Knits. It's a great pattern with two options for the foot: either carry the pattern down the top of the foot or with the design shown below. It's rather unique, I haven't seen anything like this on a sock.
I just love the little details, like how the ribbing in the cuff works right into the pattern of the leg and then how the lines in the leg flow right into the heel.
When not worn, the lines in the pattern have soft curves. But when the sock is on, the yarn overs pop and the lines turn create an angular zig-zag affect.
I haven't finished the second sock yet, but Melissa just released the pattern and I wanted to send some good vibes her way. Don't you think Psychedelia would be a great one to add to your list for Christmas gifts?
