One More Sock Junkie
Yes, I too have succumbed to the craze for knitting socks. After all the years of my freeform crochet obsession and the number of times I tried to take up knitting and dropped it, I finally got it. I love working on DP's. These Valentine's Day socks owe a lot to the eastern way of knitting, though I still worked from the top down. The lace motif is crocheted. I adapted it from part of a motif from an old tablecloth pattern. They called it "Spring Beauty" but I though it looked like a pomegranate design. Now I need to get busy and finish the other one!
