My Lacy Socks

My second pair this month is a pair of SFS socks. These were made from Opal tan and used four different needle sizes, from 0 to 2. The idea of the pattern was to make them so that they would mold to a soldier's calf better. Their legs are 12" long. That's so they can fit up over boots.

Anyway, a friend modeled them for me, and here they are.
I made these from the Favorite Socks book. I think the pattern is called wavy lace. I made them for an online friend I have known for 10 years. We met in person for the first time and I presented them to her.

The yarn is Smooshie purple. I love working with it. It is so very soft.

She was thrilled with them. She has never had a pair of hand knit socks before.
