help looking for sock pattern.
mothers day coming up and i have a MIL for whom i would like to knit up some socks. i have lornas laces in a nice purple so its a solid yarn. im looking for a sock that wont be too hard for a newbie to tackle, yet it looks intricate or lacy or feminine. not just the p2 k2 which ive done with the help of silvers sock tutorial.

anyone knitted up a pair of socks that would fit this bill?

These socks from Knitty would be great I think. I just finshed the first one today. The pattern is really simple!

I'm doing Jeane Townsend's Cascading leaves right now, and finding them very simple, yet lacy looking.

That's how I got it, and how Becka got it too! She's done several, and I'm on my first pair after completely losing patience with the lace socks I was trying to do out of my Patons pattern booklet. The big advantage to the Cascading Leaves is that if you have the slightest problem with it, you can post to the KAL group and one or more of the dozens of people that have made it will be able to help you!
