Crenate

Crenate

My first pair for the 26 Pair Plunge is Crenate, a very enjoyable pattern from Rachel Coopey. I love how the pattern builds up, and I really adore what it does around the back of the heel. The extended ribbing in the back keeps the sock in place, but the lace lower in the leg adds some party to the back! They also fit great.

I felt it was time for some turquoise socks, considering it's one of my favorite colors. It also happens to be the most difficult color to reproduce correctly in photos. I used Wollmeise Twin in the T├╝rkis colorway. For a long time I had an aversion to Twin, while my Pure stash is, umm, extensive. However, I'm warming up to it, which naturally means I'll have to have all my favorite Wollmeise colorways in this base, as well.
