another easy-to-knit sock with a handsome texture that belies the simplicity of its pattern. a near-cabled look is achieved with absolutely no crossing of stitches; the bit of openwork that accents the motif would never be construed as “lace”, yet it results in a pleasingly breathable fabric, same as the frilly stuff. a completely portable project to knit in time for holiday gifting, this sock is a real man-pleaser (but oh-so-pretty in pink—just sayin’).
liz at mackintosh yarns, enthusiastically provided the yarn for this sock project and wants to share her terrific selection of yarns and fibers with all of us. thank you liz!
gail is on a test-knitting tear with her second pair of knitspot socks in a row; you can get a glimpse of her very-different take on them in her october 19th post. while you’re there, take a sec to wish her a happy BD (it was yesterday but birthdays last all week, right?
ok, let’s look some more at david modeling in his new socks.
