These are shamelessly frilly, fluffy, girly socks — because sometimes that’s exactly what you need.  It’s hopeless to fight it.  The stitch pattern is unapologetically lacy and swirly.  It looks complicated, but it is actually surprisingly simple.  The pattern repeat is only 4 rows high, and it is very easy to memorize.

The yarn is a delicious 50-50 merino alpaca blend by Dicentra Designs.  The alpaca adds the perfect touch of luxury.  If you’re going to make a confection like these, you really should use a marvelous yarn, shouldn’t you?  And at least one lucky reader can.  Just check out Dicentra Designs’ shop, and leave a comment here with the color you’d use to make these socks.  The winner will get that yarn and a copy of the pattern.  I’ll keep the comments open till Wednesday evening, and announce the winner on Thursday.
