Just like Wednesday, Thursday doesn't seem to be very high on the list of popular weekdays when it comes to song titles. It took me some research and listening to songs to find one to use as my inspriation for my Thursday socks and in the end I decided for Thursday's Child by Tanita Tikaram. Do you know the song?
I admit, I have no idea what the song is all about, but I love the happy folksy spirit of the melody, so I chose a playful all-over stitch pattern to go with this feeling. Floats created by slipping stitches are gathered to form 'butterflies'; a stitch pattern that works very well with variegated yarn. To even up the negative ease created by the slip stitch pattern and also for decorative reasons, the heel, sole and toe are worked in Eye of the Partridge pattern.
Thursday's Child is available as individual download or as part of the Eight Days A Week collection from my Ravelry store, here.
