• Size 2 double-pointed needles
  • 2 skeins of Patons Lace-weight yarn
  • Stitch holder (so I can do both socks section-by-section)
  • Tapestry needle


I’ll be following the pattern here.  There’s three sets of instructions for three different yarn weights.  I’ll be doing the lightest, in purple.

I’ve actually used this pattern before, so I hope I’ll be able to get through it pretty fast.  Last time I did it in a worsted weight acrylic. It was soft, softer than I expected from a cheap synthetic.

Worsted-weight acrylic

The problem was, it was still worsted weight, so the inside was pretty knobby. It left crease marks on my foot after a while.

So I’m going to try a lighter yarn this time.  I’m hoping the inside will turn out flatter that way.
