These may be my favorite socks ever.
After spending way too much time trying to find the perfect pattern to use with this yarn, I decided to just wing it a bit. They're almost the same as the lace rib socks I've done twice already, but I added an extra line of knit stitches between the purls and that was just enough to make them a bit fancier and a bit prettier...
And did I mention that I could still knit the pattern from memory, so I didn't need to haul around a chart or written notes? I want to find more stitch patterns like that.
The lace pattern flows happily into the k1p1 ribbing. I'm not a fan of k1p1, but it's going to make things this pretty and symmetrical I'll struggle through a couple of inches of it.
And I got the lace pattern centered across the top of the foot without having to jog it one stitch to the left or right. That would have worked, but having it centered it better. (Not being able to figure out how to center a 9 stitch lace pattern is why I decided against the pattern I'd planned on using.)
Did I mention that I love this yarn?
