April Footlets

I used a lone skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Crazy Stripes for my April socks.  One skein was not enough for an average pair of socks but I had to do something with this fun yarn.  I chose the Padded Footlets pattern by Mary Snyder from the Favorite Socks book by Interweave.  I "unpadded" them and love the result.  I love how the striping came out with the pattern and they are super comfortable due to the ribbing on the sides of the instep.  The sock has nice details and the instep pattern is echoed on the heel.  I cannot wait to wear them! I even had yarn left over.
