Merino Lace Socks

I've finally finished a pair of socks! This time it's the Merino Lace Socks.


They were a lot of fun to knit up. The pattern is very elegant. It's easy enough to memorize, and difficult enough to be interesting.

I did make one "change" from the pattern. In the Favorite Socks book, the purl stitches are not included on the foot lace chart. This is actually an error (the chart was different in the original magazine pattern), and I continued the purl stitches down the foot to continue the established look.

There are more pictures and details on my blog entry here.

your socks are beautiful! I love the color(s). Can't wait to start on my pair in that pattern. I must free my pair of #1 needles first though. :)
