A little lace to lighten your mood

Thanks for the well-wishes . I'm still working from home because my back still isn't up to snuff - but it's better.

After I packed my work away for the day, I went on a mini cleaning rampage. I focused on my knitting station/coffee table and frogged some UFOs, organized some patterns, and rediscovered a design I had started a few months ago...

It was only a few repeats from being done, so I put my nose to the grindstone and finished it off. The pattern needs a few minor tweaks, and of course the second sock knit - but I'm quite pleased with it. It's very light and lacey - the perfect spring/summer sock.

This one is knit in our Alley Cat BFL - it's not my favourite, but it's still a good sturdy sock yarn, and washes up beautifully!

I've got a few more octopi to knit for friends (a couple of requests came in after I posted the last on Facebook), but I expect I should get the second sock done pretty quick. It's one of those patterns you seem to breeze through, because you just want to knit a few more rows to get to the end of the lace repeat.

Nice looking sock; there's something about lace on a sock.

Lace socks are fun to knit. However, at the moment I still shudder when I think about knitting socks. I hope my sock mojo returns soon. What colorway is that?

I expect that you could be busy for the foreseeable future if you show those octopi around - they rock!

Cute sock pattern! Can't wait to see it done!
