Fairy wings

This magical fairy themed design was inspired by a gorgeous skein of hand dyed yarn. The colour of the yarn made Kay think of fluttery fairy wings.

The socks feature a traditional Shetland motif worked in panels. The rhythm of the stitch pattern make this the perfect comfort knit. The design is finished off with Kay’s ‘Umbrella Toe’.
