The mystery revealed. It’s the Surprise! Socks. Well, Surprise Sock, anyway. Second sock is on the needles.
At first, it looks like a normal sock, albeit one knit in Koigu KPPPM, gorgeous fingering-weight hand-painted yarn in 100% superwash merino wool.
But then you put it on and it’s actually lace ribbing with a butterfly on the foot–
…and another on the heel!
