FOs: Diagonal Lace Socks, a Basic Pair of Mittens

Because I didn’t want to face some inevitable and partially completed sock surgery after managing to fall yet again while teaching my water aerobics class (grrr!), I took a little time out to weave in ends – it’s so satisfying to take about a 1/2 hour to get a couple of small things completely done.

The socks:

The mittens:

The mittens are for Afghans for Afghans – and the current campaign goes ’til Valentine’s Day, February 14th. Hoping to at least get another pair of mittens and socks done in time.

  1. Once again you and I are knitting the same thing! I’m beginning the Diagonal Lace Socks. It’s my first toe-up pattern, so I don’t expect it to go fast. Yours are inspiring me to carry on.

    • It’s a nice pattern to use for a variety of varigated yarns. I did a slightly different heel that I know how to do because I changed the number of repeats to fit my foot, and Wendy’s book doesn’t have a worksheet for varying the stitch counts to the heel she has. I’m very happy with them!
