Sharon requested for the details of the Basket Weave Socks on my previous post & so here they are - the basket weave pattern is from Stitches of Violet & I just knit the socks toe-up & then incorporate the basket weave ribbing on the leg of the socks.
I use Lana Grossa sock yarn, Cotton Maya which is 45% cotton & 42% wool in color 7018 which can be purchased from Knitting Inspirations. It's a nice yarn & is suitable for summer knitting.
I am now knitting a pair of plain socks (toe-up again) with a lace rib on the cuff - using Opal Petticoat. I have just cast off 1 sock & cast on the 2nd - hope to finish that before Friday evening! Will post a pic of the socks this weekend.
Happy knitting to all (especially Michelle)
