For You, Sock Pal

I finished my pal's socks!

Pattern: Merino Lace Socks by Anne Woodbury. Published in Favorite Socks and Interweave Knits Summer 2003. The most major change I made was how I worked the heel flap. Rather than continue the lace patterns down the heel flap, I worked the typical heel with slipped stitches (Row 1: *slip 1, knit 1,* repeat across, Row 2: slip 1, purl across). I really enjoyed this pattern, and would love to make myself a pair someday!

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in color 14ns (denim), 2 skeins. As always, this yarn was a pleasure to work with.

Needles: Addi Turbo US 0 (2 mm), 40 inch circular (magic loop method). This was the first (finished) pair of socks where I worked the two simultaneously.

To finish off the look, I made up a label. I used the pictures of the custom labels that Grumperina made for her pal's socks for Sockapaloooza as the basis of what kind information to include.

Sock Pal, you'll have to wait until August for your socks, but I hope you'll enjoy them!

I love them :). I'm knitting a slight variation of the pattern for my pal (toe up, little reorganized stitch patterns etc...) and I hope they will turn out this beautiful!
