FO: Lace socks
Finally got these socks finished. Might give them to someone since I have millions of wooly socks already :D

This is a very easy lace pattern I found from http://craftoholic.blogspot.com/. Next time I use this pattern I will leave out the first/last knitted stiches from the pattern because I personally don't like the "stripes" on the sides.

They look great
Did it take much longer than knitting plain socks? I've only been knitting one pair of patterned socks untill now and that was an easy cable one. I've stayed away from something more complicated because I thought it would take too long.

Mer --> It's Finnish Novita Nalle Colori yarn. It's 75% wool and 25% polyamide. You're supposed to use size 3 1/2 mm needles, don't know what mine were (the problem associated with borrowing needles from your mum who keeps them all mixed up in a plastic bag)

The yarn is very easy to knit and very durable. I've had socks from Nalle yarn that I have worn for years without too much wear and tear - exactly why I have so many pairs of socks :rollseyes:

javede --> It wouldn't have taken me long at all if i hadn't run out of yarn while knitting the first sock :rollseyes:

I'd say it took me about 3 days to knit each sock. The pattern is really easy to memorize so it makes the whole knitting process much faster.
