for the most part. I don't need or particularly like fancy things.
So when I recently decided to up the ante on my knitting, I pulled out an intermediate level sock pattern which happens to be called Ribbed Lace. It's in Charlene Schurch's book Sensational Knitted Socks.
But as I started the stitches and saw holes, I realized these socks just would not do. Holes in socks? I mean really. Why bother wearing socks for warmth if they are laced with holes? So, I pulled out all the stitches and started over with a simple basket weave. Still intermediate level.
I likey much better.
And the color...Matador by Felici at Knit Picks. Oh my. Can't wait to wear these. They actually remind me of the scene in The Birdcage* when they try to play off Albert as the straight uncle. He walks in wearing a dark suit and sits down. When he crosses his leg... a flash of pink from his socks! Classic.
