Child's French Sock

The March sockdown at the Sock Knitters Anonymous group at Ravelry inspired me to knit a pair of lace socks, for which I chose this pattern from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. This is my third finished pattern from that book.

The yarn (ONline linie 3 Supersocke 100) I'd had in my stash for over a year now, but never used. Turns out I like this yarn a lot: It has just the right amount of softness and thickness, and the yarn doesn't split very easily and yet doesn't feel as overspun as something like Jitterbug. I also like this color a lot. 

I went with smaller needles than suggested, because I figured I would be getting nowhere near the desired gauge with 2.5 mm needles. So, I picked 2.0 mm DPNs instead, and that turned out to be the right choice. I'm going to give these to my mom for Mother's Day.


  1. i love this socks! i saw the pattern knit up before, but i really like your yarn choice.

  2. Holy cow, those are stunning. I love the color, I love the beauty of them. Wonderful. Now back to Ravelry to queue.
