Finished Object : Socks of Kindness

This week, I finished my Socks of Kindness 🙂

Knitting the second sock was surprisingly much faster than knitting the first one since I had memorized the lace motif repeats, so no need to look at the pattern again 🙂 This kind of simple lace motif for socks is definitely something I would like to try again for 2 reasons.

First, full stockinette stitch sock can sometimes become boring to knit and a textured motif gives some extra interest to the pattern to keep motivation going till the end of the second sock. Second reason is that a motif helps you keep track of rows counting so you exactly know where you are in your pattern. For example, for these socks I knew that I had to knit 7,5 repeats of the motif before I start the heel flap and 5,5 repeats before I start the toe. No measuring, no row counting, really easy to keep track of. I am really happy with the fitting of this pair of socks and with the visual effect of the lace.
