2006-17: Crystalline Lattice Socks

Update: The Crystalline Lattice sock pattern has been posted on the Crystal Palace Yarns web site.

Yarn: Approx 95gm Crystal Palace Yarn Panda Wool
Needles: Crystal Palace 2.5mm DPNs
Pattern: Crystalline Lattice

They look nice flat, but take a look at them when they're worn:

Although they're named for a molecular structure, the texture also reminds me of armor plating. But that wouldn't be a very good name for a sock, would it?

When will the pattern be available? I've got one more sock to knit, this time in a larger size so I can include 2 sizes in the pattern. I'm expecting more Panda Wool to arrive in the mail, so it'll be a little while.

A note about the photos--these were taken with natural light. The images initially looked great on my Trinitron CRT, but looked completely washed out on an LCD monitor. These images are a compromise. Too saturated on a CRT and okay, but not great on an LCD.

For those of you who wanted to know about my photo set up, here's today's background.

  • Wow, beautiful socks! And I thought you had some sort of high-tech photo shoot setup. Your photos look so professional, IMHO. :)

  • Hey, wow. They look great. I think you've solved the problem of what I should do with my Dye-o-rama yarn! Looking forward to the pattern.

  • I can't believe your 'background' — they come out so amazingly professional looking! I had a laugh at this one. But the socks... the socks are gorgeous.
