What do you need when it's all the time grey, cold and ugh outside? Yes, exactly, you need to knit a pair of lacy socks in a cheerful summery colour. So that's what I did. And not only that, I turned the idea into a new pattern right away.
Okay, the picture taking bit means that you either freeze your butt off or you have to stick to indoor pics, which makes you go bananas because of the poor light, but still: My new socks make me really happy.
I called the pattern Ornamental Socks because of the intricate lace panel running down the front of the socks. The easy to memorize lace pattern is worked with clustered stitches for extra texture.
The socks are knitted cuff down with a short-row heel. The pattern includes three sizes and you can choose to work the lace panel from charts or written instructions.
So, if you are any like me and a new pair of socks is for you the perfect pick-me-up against the weather blues, as of today the pattern is available from my Ravelry store, here: Ornamental Socks.
