Description from Knitty.com:

These socks are named for my favorite neighbor and good friend Louise, who survived breast cancer last year. Like angora socks, she’s a bit crazy in the best possible way.

These toe-up socks are edged in a delicate picot trim, and kept ankle-height for economy. Knit with worsted-weight Angora/Merino yarn, they can be finished in two or three evenings and make a special gift for any woman in your life. Due to the delicate nature of the yarn, they’re best for lounging around the house, not for stuffing into your favorite tennies for a day at the mall. The pattern is knit to match a standard women’s sock size 9-11. To customize, take the measurements of the foot in question and adjust the sole length as necessary. The pattern as shown here uses approximately 125 yards of Angel. Knitting it larger might require a fourth ball of yarn.
