Mom likes to tease me about my love for ankle socks. But it's not just because they are a quick knit, I really do love wearing ankle socks.
The quick, however, is definitely a bonus. By 5:30 p.m. yesterday, the first Lotus Heart sock was finished.
The cuff is knit sideways, and then you pick up stitches in the round to complete the socks in a pretty leaf pattern down the foot. .
You all know how I feel about knitting leaves - love it! That, combined with the awesome colour and nice smooshy Alley Cat Falkland, make this a pair you want to just keep knitting and knitting.
They look like little "sprite" socks when they are on. I love them. Too bad it's too warm here for socks right now.
I'd like to say I'd have the second sock off the needles just as quick as the first, but I've started a new position at work, and things are a little hectic while I get up to speed. Maybe by the end of the week - but I'm not making any promises!
