In any event, a few months ago, I agreed to do some sample knits for Lorajean of Knitted Wit (you can read more about her and her schtuff in previous posts). The first was the Virginia cowl with her Bulkan - gorgeous stuff. Great color, great feel. I also signed up to do the 'Love Letters' sock, designed by Irish Girlie Knits. Looked at the pattern and thought, "Cool. A cuff that stops, a pattern down only part of the foot, Rad. I'll knock this out in no time."

Once I got past the cuff (which carried the lace pattern around the entire leg), the rest was a piece of cake. I would certainly make this pattern again, with a few modifications. I think I would do the whole sock like the foot is done, with just one needle carrying the pattern the whole way down, bump up the needle size to a 2 (personally easier for me to work with), and reduce the no. of cast on stitched to adjust for the needle bump. I was really pleased with the end result. I think the yarn and the pattern work really well together.
