The pattern is from here.  I made these socks using sockotta sock yarn which is 45% cotton, 40% superwash wool, and 15% vicose.  The yarn was such a dream to work with, and I'll definately be using it again.  I only did four repeats in the "leg" of the sock because I was afraid of not having enough yarn (I only had one ball... ~417yards), but I probably could have done five or six easily.  I <3 this lace pattern sooo much.  I think that with the left over yarn I'll make a headband incorporating the lace pattern.

I liked these so much I've already printed the pattern !

I thought the other pattern at the site, Anastasia, was great too. I really liked the way it combined with a very variegated yarn.

I'd actually never done lace socks before and these went by pretty quick.  If you know how to knit, purl, yo, k2tog, ssk, you're good to go Smiley  I used four needles to hold the stitches, and one to knit (I put a lace repeat on each needle) for a grand total of five needles.  I think that made it a little easier.
