After I finished my Stripe Study Shawl (still waiting on the sidelines to be blocked, ends woven in, photographed), I was hankering for a smaller project. I’ve been hoarding this skein of sock yarn from Sweet Fiber Yarns and it was time to just knit something with it already!
This spring-worthy colorway called Grapefruit had to become socks with a lace pattern. I picked Cadence Socks, a free pattern from VeryBusyMonkey (Ravelry link). Turned out to be the perfect pairing of colorway + pattern.
Considering that there are lace charts, I thought that this would be a project that I could knit slowly until summer rolls along. Wrong! These socks were finished in under a month, with no knitalong deadlines or anything… a first for me especially with socks!!
I absolutely adore how these turned out and the color is just incredible! The yarn has cashmere in it. Now, that’s just mmm mmm!
The lace pattern isn’t complicated at all. The only thing you have to be mindful of when you are knitting the second sock is that the stitches are distributed differently to produce a mirrored pair.
This pattern is well written and the finished project is so worth it. I made no modifications, just enjoyed creating these 🙂
