My picture does not do this yarn any kind of justice so just search Flickr for Wollmiese and you will see many beautiful pictures of this yarn.
I have been searching for a pattern that will go with the T&K yarn. Because it has such a strong stripe to it I'm not sure what I want to do. Not my photo but this is the color. I could do some simple ribbing I guess but kind of want do do something more. Suggestions?
Maybe I'll do the "RR" pair first because I feel like with the multi-color I'm more open to doing something more lacey.

Sorry about the not so great photo. I sprained my ankle and so I can't even put on the left sock to model.

I really liked this yarn. It was actually one that was just beautiful in the skein, maybe more so than knit up. This is my second pair with this pattern and I'm sure it won't be my last. I'll try to post another picture of a sock on a foot.

Revised: STR Picot Top Sock

Here is the revised Picot top with a few rows of moss stitch to keep it from rolling. It is much better and I think it looks nice too. Thanks for the ideas from the members of Socknitters List!

problems with picot edge

STR toe up with attempted picot bind off, unfortuanatly it folds down. I wanted to have just a plain stockinette sock with a picot edge. I found some instructions for a picot bind off from Knitty. I really don't want to put ribbing on the top to stop the fold because I think it won't look very good. I did recieve a suggestion for moss stitch at the top which I think I'm going to try.
