These were a gift-knit for my Mom. They're made out of LB Wool-Ease worsted I got on discount for $1.50. The color I chose doesn't do the sock's design justice, but I think they look pretty good anyways.  Grin

The pattern is by D-Made (http://d-made.blogspot.com) which she posted on Craftster a little while ago. I also made the Traveler Sock which you can also find on her website!

They're knit from the toe-up using the magic loop method. I <3 Socks! More details on my blog, of course. Thanks for looking.  Kiss

Great looking socks.  I love that kind of lace pattern, I think I will have to try it out myself.

Socks are your friend, tristitia!

The only semi-hard part for me when I knit my first sock was the heel-shaping and, trust me, it's not that bad. I would recommend this sock (or Traveler). Her directions are easy to follow and she includes plenty of illustrations, too.  Cheesy

Cool! I just wore my Traveler socks to work and have decided they are really house-socks - I could feel the stitches on the bottom of my foot.  I used Cascade 220 - I wonder if Wool-Ease wouldn't do that with the Acrylic content...

Great socks!! I'll have to give them a try... they'd be nice in a beautiful blue or turqoise I think...

Trista - you said:

Don't be afraid!!! - Believe me - I was SO afraid of socks and then I tried them and they are SOOOOOOOO easy!! Try looking at Knitty's site for the Training Sock and then use knittinghelp.com - and do a search for online sock lessons - just to help you through it... I think I might get around to doing something online myself when I finally get a blog up.... but really - they are great and not hard at all!! Do it!! Do it for the sock!!

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.
