I love handknit socks, and like to try out different construction techniques. These toe up socks feature a pretty leaf lace framed by mini twisted cables. The garter stitch heel is comfy & easy to work. The lace panel grows into a twisted cable cuff that is both functional & interesting. The lace panel is fairly easy to memorise, and keeping the rest of the sock in stocking stitch makes these ideal travel knitting. The lace panel has both charted and written instructions and a video link for the cast on is included in the pattern.

I have been crafty all my life, with different interests at different times. Knitting & crochet have become my focus, but I also sew and dabble in other crafts. Two of my three boys are following in my crafty footsteps, which makes me proud :)
