socks with holes

... that's what my mom would say, holes. i call it lace. but it feels like holes when it's cold and breezy.

i have been pretty good at keeping my new year's resolution of trying to not knit orphans. i did start these socks the day after christmas, so they're not that old ... not like some others (orphans).

these are the waving lace socks from _favorite socks_. they're designed by evelyn a. clark. i guess when i'm not busy knitting her lace shawls, i am knitting her lace socks.

the yarn (ONline's linie 2 supersocke silk) was a gift (thank you yarn faerie!). i had spotted it awhile back, but didn't get it. someone else was paying attention and making 'note to self', and snatched it for me later. it's pretty stuff ... smooth and lustrous. it's a little harsh on the hands though, like knitting with cotton. but, i would knit with it again, as the fabric is silky soft.
