Veni, Vidi, Vici - Vilai

Sock Innovation project #5, Vilai, was a  challenging project.  You'll need to use all your powers of memory, focus and attention to stay on pattern. I had to  break out my colored pencils to delineate breaks in the pattern, as well as stitch markers, and lifelines. 

I did have to rip out the first sock several times, then it all came together in the second sock. I used some lovely Madelintosh sock yarn that I had received in a previous swap. The yarn is a nice rich forest green with flecks of brownish gray and teal. I didn't want to do a variegated yarn because I wanted this pattern to really pop. I used a size one needle for these instead of a size two called for making the fit much better for my small feet.
