I promised myself to learn to knit socks this year and I actually knit a pair! It was so much easier than I thought, and fun, too. Now all I want to do is knit more socks. :)
For my first pair I chose this pretty pattern by Olivia Villarreal called Wildflowers & Honeycomb. I absolutely love how they knit up. The lace work is really simple yet so beautiful. I've had the yarn in my stash for several years just waiting for the perfect project. I love it with this pattern. It's Madelinetosh Merino Light in the colorway Modern Fair Isle. I highly recommend this pattern.
