Here is my Snow Thistle!

I found this sock pattern in a leaflet from Schachenmayr.
It was for knee high socks so
I modified it to a shorter version. There was no name, only a number.
I really needed a name for the sock because numbers just
don't cut it with me!
A very artistic gal from my Yahoo knitting group
came up with one that couldn't be
more suitable. Thank you so very much Susan!

at the left sidebar to see the pair.

Thanks for the link, I received the pattern book and I have knit my gauge cuff/swatch. I love the pattern. It is simple and very well charted. The pamphlet has so many beautiful patterns, I cannot wait to try a couple of the others as well.
