View Full Version : Lacy Top Slipper Sock

I'll have to speed up my knitting, but with a little luck I just might get the mate to this slipper sock done before Christmas.:knitting:

I worked up the sock cuff using the Horseshoe Lace stitch from "The Knitter's Bible"; the sock body is from a pattern (very well written) by Lisa Dozier. I used Red Heart Knitting Worsted and No. 5 needles.

Sock experts, please be kind. It's been 20+ years since I've done any sock knitting, except for teensy tree ornaments. :oops:

Thanks, everybody! I'm into the blue on Sock No. 2 and am pretty sure now that I'll make it in time to get the pair wrapped.:) If my dear d-i-l will agree to let me shoot a pic of her feet in the socks, I will post it.:)

It is perfection! Very artistic, like everything you do!!

And I don't see any flaws anywhere! :thumbsup:

Happy holidays everybody, and thank you for the wonderful feedback! :) :heart:

My DIL loves the socks and let me shoot a pic right after she put them on! She's wearing them over her "bed" socks, so her feet are very toasty-warm today. :)

I came right down to the wire on this project and barely got the pair wrapped in time, but except for one maddening problem with four Kitchener stitches (argh!) on the toe of Sock No. 2, I was very happy with the outcome. I will definitely do other versions of this sock with minor adjustments and different lace patterns. :)

Very nice! Love them! :yay:

Thank you!:) As you can see from the final picture, I did get a little laddering, which didn't show until my DIL put the socks on. I thought I was pulling the yarn tight when I changed needles, but I can see that the tension will have to be even tighter next time around.

I'm really into slipper socks now, and can't wait to start another pair!:knitting:
