Pattern: Over the Garden Wall Socks, March’s Socktopus Sock Club pattern by the very talented Lou and Emms.
Yarn: Artist’s Palette Yarns Sweet Feet
Modifications: I made a simplified version of the pattern, with just one trellis lace panel, not two as specified in the pattern. I also omitted the icord vine that was supposed to grow up the trellis pattern. It looked pretty, but reminded me rather of a snake – not good for a snake-phobic knitter!
The cuff was meant to be an incredibly pretty daisy pattern to top off the trellis wall. It looked lovely, but unfortunately was too tight for my heels. Instead I knit 5 rows of seed stitch and finished off with a frilled cast off.
Notes: I adored the combination of this pattern and the gently variegated yarn. The stocking stitch showed off the grey-blue colours, reminiscent of an English sky, while the trellis lace panel added just enough detail to make them interesting, pretty and girlie. I love them!
oh my goodness! Anna they are so very pretty! And your shoes! What an adorable match.
the legs, the socks and the SHOES are perfect!!!

They look fab! I love the shoes, too — where did you get them?!
Thanks for the compliments on the shoes! They are made by Repetto, who make dancing shoes. I got them from the Toast catalogue. I love them, but the thin dancing soles mean they’re not great to wear all day.
Adorable!! Love the pics.
