Crosshatch Lace Socks.

Crosshatch Lace pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks
LL Shepherd Sock in Poppy
Worked toe up with a short row heel, magic 8 cast on toe, and a Russian bind off for the cuff.

Whew, all done. I like how this pattern looks on the leg.

One Down and One to Go

I have had this yarn it seems like since before time began. It is a Stahl yarn but the name escapes me since I didn't keep the band. The pattern is Slip Stitch Rib from SSS. My DH just made the socker blockers from wire hangers. The foot is big because their intended reciepent has large feet.

ecr's on the elephant trail

elongated corded rib in schaefer anne

From book #1, these are elongated corded rib. This 4-stitch pattern knits up to a lovely scrunchy fabric. The Schaefer Anne is soft, and compared to the book photo, the rib took on a completely different definition (she used Gems Opal). I'm very happy with this pair.

Pattern: elongated corded rib
Yarn: Schaefer Anne
Needles: silvalume size 1 dpns

I haven't got a pair of socks picture but I took my book to Kinkos and had them spiral bind the book so it lays flat! It sure makes it easier to follow the patterns.
