Simply Lovely Lace Socks

I don't know if these socks technically count as lace or not. (There's an excellent discussion of this over on Knitting Curmudgeon - see her March 2, 2006 essay on Knitting Lace vs. Lace knitting). If, as Marilyn says, lace knitting has patterning on every row vs. lace knitting having plain row(s) in between, then this pattern would be lace knitting. It is a really simple 4 row repeated pattern, and you're only making yarnovers on the 2nd row of each repeat. Pretty fun so far.

I'm taking this as a "Project class" at Yarn Shop and More where we're working on these Simply Lovely Lace Socks from Interweave Knits - p. 64 Spring 2005 issue.

Just what I needed, another new project, right? Hmmmm. Yeah. I'll talk more about my scattered-ness in the next post. But I started the Simply Lovely Lace Socks on page 64 of Interweave Knits. The pattern is by Karen Baumer. Here is what we're aiming for:

And here are my efforts thus far - I'm using Cascade Fixation in Celtic Green:

I think it's such a pretty pattern--it it will look great in the green you've chosen!

I've been dying to make those socks but first I have to finish all the OTHERS I've started! Can't wait to see yours finished!
