I Can't Believe I'm Knitting Lace Socks!
Embossed Leaves in Progress
I was sure I wouldn't care for lace socks. But this pattern might have changed my mind.
Some of us have to pay attention when working from a chart. One reader commented that she couldn't memorize this pattern and so the second sock never happened. It's a lovely pattern but I couldn't memorize it, either.
There are 16 rows to this pattern, and by the time one remembers the pattern to a row, it's on to the next row. And there are no rows in between where you can cruise (like a straight knit row). Maybe if you are a veteran lace knitter or if you have done the socks several times you might know it by heart. Even so, it's not a difficult pattern.
And here's a view of the sock on my foot. Notice the garter stitch patterning on the flap, a nice touch.
Will I like the holes? Maybe.
