New Pair of Socks on the Needles
It has been a long time since I knitted a pair of socks. The last pair was knitted more than 18 months ago. So, I thought it is just about time to get to work on another pair. This time I am using a pattern out of Cat Bordhi's e-book, Cat's Sweet Tomato Heel Socks. The pattern is a lace sock in fingering weight yarn called Minnesota Moonlight. I love the Sweet Tomato Heel and have used it in prior socks and basically bought the book just so that I could get the instructions on how to do the heel! But I have never done any of Cat's actual sock patterns. So of course I start with a lace pair!
I am hoping these socks end up thin enough for me to wear in dressier shoes. All of the other socks that I have knit worsted weight socks, so these will be the first sock weight socks.
