This is Little Turtle Knits’ January Sock Club Pattern. It will be available for public purchase on June 1, 2009.
We’re deep into midwinter, and all around there’s frost on my windows, a sprinkling of ice glittering on the lawn, and the blissful quiet of these frozen days. January is my favorite month for knitting. The holidays and the frenzy to finish are past, and all that awaits is long evenings snuggled under a blanket with a teapot by my side and knitting needles in hand.
The lace in these socks reflects the view out my window—frost patterns etching the glass, looking perfectly intricate and lovely. But it’s actually quite easy—a simple four row repeat produces this exquisite lace. A mitered short row toe for minimal interruption in the lace, and a star toe complete this sock that will remind you of these frosty days long after the ice has melted and the daffodils have begun to bloom!
