For the last few holidays, I’ve tried to focus on giving handmade gifts. But, one of my biggest problems with holiday knitting is that sometimes you have to give a gift still on the needles. I like patterns that are easily memorized, but hold my attention span. I designed these socks so they have an intriguing lace repeat, and are quick to knit. I like to think that I know my friends and family well enough to give them gifts they will enjoy, but I know that sometimes I miss the mark. Not so with these socks! My friends and family love the undulating pattern. One friend commented that they reminded her of tadpoles swimming through the water. All at once, I was picturing myself knitting by the side cool pond on a hot summer day. Not a bad daydream for the middle of winter. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit Knitting in the round GAUGE 28 stitches and 40 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch

I'm a stay at home mom and knitwear designer. I took up knitting in 2004 after watching my mother-in-law knit a sock. Up until July 2009, I had a mission to live in all the Great Lakes states. But then we relocated to Texas. Going from 117 inches of snow a winter to 117 degrees in the summer is going to be quite a shock to the system. So was moving to a town without a yarn store. I am married to a knitter, yay! It is great to have a husband who shares your hobby, not so great to have someone who shares your yarn budget. :-) I blog, sporatically, at
