"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

"Why not?"....

There is definitely something wrong with this photo! Can you see it? Yes, that's right....Circular needles!!! OH MY!! Regular readers will know that I am a DPN devotee - Pony Pearls to be exact - for socks anyway. Guess I was just in a "Why not?" mood when I read thru the beginning of this pattern, and saw that the directions were written for circs. I am a little clumsy, and I think I might prefer 24" instead of the 16" that I had on hand, but I am adapting. Shirley - are you proud of me?? :)
The pattern is "Merino Lace Socks" by Anne Woodbury from Interweve's "Favorite Socks". I had not given this pattern a second glance until I recently saw a completed pair by Grumperina. Then I had to revisit the book. A very nice pattern, although the photo in the book does not do justice to it at all. (neither does my photo actually, but check out Grumperina's - (October 14th post) - beautiful!
The large lace panel will run down the front and back of the sock. These are out of Opal, and hopefully will be a birthday gift - if sizing is adequate when they are done. (No Anna, not for you). It's a fun knit too, so if an first you were not impressed by the pattern, I would encourage you to revisit it.
