Summer School, Heels and Toes, Changeful

On Monday we talked a bit about heels and toes, and for the rest of the week I’ll be showing off some of my personal favorites.

These are Changeful, there are actually three different versions of the sock in the pattern, and they’re 25% off on ravelry with the code SUMMER SCHOOL through the end of the day, eastern time, Tuesday July 14.

This is a perfect example of what I mean when I suggest you find an element of the sock that you can carry all the way through the heel and toe.  Sure you could have just had plain stockinette in those spots, but look how much cuter it is if you do something a little more intentional!

The toes mirror the ribbing at the cuff (the cuff is often a great place to look if the pattern you’re following has plain bits and you want to fancy things up a bit).

And the heels do the same thing, pick up on the lines from the body of the sock and continue them all the way through.  The result is socks that look cohesive and carefully considered in every detail!
