An irony of lace knitting is that often the people most likely to geek out over a complex lace pattern are those least likely to want to wear the fruits of their efforts.

Designed to let closet lace knitters get their lacy geek thing on, Tintern Abbey socks feature a plain ribbed instep and leg. The delicate Gothic lace pattern is fun to knit, and can be allowed to peek out from the top of a boot, but may also be hidden away, if need be, under a trouser cuff.
