Finally, finally, Yukari is done!
Pretty, lacy socks that have been specifically engineered to compatable with ONE SKEIN of Colinette Jitterbug. Yes, you can comfortably knit a pair of top-down socks (Women’s medium, US sizes 7-9) without fear of running out of yarn (when the pattern’s leg and foot length are followed, of course.)
Naturally, you don't need to wait until you have a skein of Jitterbug on hand to kit Yukari -- she's equally pretty in any other fingering yarn. Semi-solids and solid coloured yarns would show off her patterning nicely, but variegated yarns are lots of fun, too.
If you're looking for a quick, easy and lacy sock to knit, Yukari's your girl!
