Since I’ve already written about Lucy Neatby in my last post, I’ll just talk about her sock finesse. The checkered socks–well, cute and fun to make. The ruffled cuff is such a nice touch. But the biking socks. ¬†Oh my. The overall pattern is designed to resemble the links on a bike chain. At each of the four ankle positions, is the bike dude guy sitting on his bike. In the background behind him, mountains are knitted in. You can’t see it well in this photo, but the top of the foot is decorated too. One sock has a stylized eagle knitted in. The other has a moose. At my current hourly rate as an attorney, this pair of bike socks would sell for about $45,000. And I’m not a slow knitter or a really pricey attorney. I was so proud of myself for completing these.
