Dream socks!

The name says it all. I love these "dreamy" socks!! Pattern: Priscilla's Dream Socks by Priscilla Gibson-Roberts. The yarn is STR Silkie "Walking on the Wild side" - the current club selection.

They have 64 stitches, and I used 2.5 and 2.25mm Pony Pearl DPNS for their construction.
First time I have ever had a great outcome with a shortrow heel, and the first time I have ever made a shortrow toe. Love the outcome - both the appearance and the fit. So happy I tried this pattern. These techniques will be with me for a long time!

Beautiful job! I'm trying a different pattern for my STR Silkie too-- I might use this one if it doesn't work out :)
