FO ~ Socks #5/2007

17 March 2007

Yarn: Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock ~ Lakeview

Needles: 2.5mm bamboo & 2.25mm birch DPNs

Pattern: The pattern is based on Gentleman's Fancy Sock from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks, but I made some alterations. Instead of doing leg decreases, I started with the # of stitches you decrease to and used a larger needle size, then switching to the smaller needles for the foot. I did my regular heel (with an eye of partridge heel flap) and toe. I had planned to continue the pattern onto the foot, but then decided it looked better plain.

Thoughts: I really enjoyed knitting with Lorna's Laces and I'll definitely be using it again. I've used this pattern before and it's fun to knit. The socks are nice and comfy too!
