When it rains it pours (socks!)

Are you sick of the new sock patterns yet? Huh? Are you??

Maybe you shouldn't answer that.

Hey, look! Mokira's (Ravelry link) done!A pretty, minimalistic lace sock perfect for those who are new to lace (or to fancy sock-knitting.) Lacy fronds wave down the leg from cuff to toe, lending gentle movement to the large portions of regular Stockinette stitches in between. If only all lace socks were this easy! Pick up the pattern right over here on Ravelry, and in a day or so in my Etsy shop.

You know the drill by now:

Size: Women’s Medium (or any foot/leg that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 8 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: 1 skein of Dream In Color Smooshy (450 y / 100 g) in Good Luck Jade or the equivalent amount of any other comparable fingering weight yarn.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Skills Needed: Knitting in the round, lace, twisted stitches, chart reading and grafting.

I'm sure that you'll all be shocked and appalled to hear that there is another new sock on the needles. To tell the truth, it's an old sock that is finally getting its due, after being overlooked for, oh, I don't know...a year and a half? Any guesses? You'll find out soon!
