Well, it's back to life outside the 1%. No one dropped off breakfast at our door this morning. :( But, I think we'll live, even though we are having Arctic temperatures today. Some hardy friends got me out for a walk this morning. There's nothing like strolling through air that feels like 1 degree F to wake you up.
I can finally blog about these, seeing as they have been gifted to my mom.
They are not any old socks. I actually designed them! I wish I could remember exactly where I got the lace pattern. I think it's from one of the Barbara Walker books. I would have documented it if I had known it was going to come out so well!
It's really a very basic, top-down sock. The lace pattern isn't complicated but I find it a bit slow-going. Still, I really love the socks. They are very textury (that probably isn't a word but you know what I mean) and squishy. I'm not sure how much of that comes from the pattern and how much from the yarn, Trekking XXL, one of my faves.
Anyway, I'd like to put it out as a free pattern. Do I need to have it test knitted before doing so?
I can't believe it's already the second Tuesday of winter break. How come vacations weeks go so much faster than work weeks?
I'm linking up with Nicole and crafting on.
