Inspired by the fields and pastures blanketed with soft and light pink evening primroses.. Here in Texas they pop up with the bluebonnets among other wildflowers in the spring. It is said that if you hang a bunch of primroses above your door it is an invitation for the fairies and their blessings. Well these might not be the exact same primroses as told in the folklore but here in Texas I still like to think the fairies dance among the wildflowers.

Lace socks knit cuff down. The pattern is written for magic loop and is adaptable to dpns if desired. The lace is simple, easy to memorize and is charted only. The lace can easily be knit from the toe up if that method is preferred. The heel included in the pattern is a short row heel.
