The parade of hand knits continues today with these gorgeous Loasa Lateritia Socks.
I can’t remember where, exactly, I first saw these socks but once I did I just had.to.knit.them. The pattern is only available as part of the ebook The Knitter’s Curiosity Cabinet and at first I resisted buying the entire book for just this one pattern. I searched for other sock patterns to satisfy my urges and even queued up a few. In the end, though, I decided there were enough other patterns in that book to make it worth the investment, and I took the plunge.
I’m so glad I did because I love-love-love these socks. There is the beautiful lace turned cuff.
And the comfortable and snug k3p1 ribbed leg and foot. I just love the way that kind of ribbing looks like stockinette when it’s not stretched out but then you put them on and they fit perfectly and feel so good.
The yarn is Woolen Rabbit Kashmir Sock, a merin/nylon/cashmere blend and it’s suitably luxurious for the pattern. The color is Godiva and it truly does look like rich dark chocolate. Mmmmm. And that’s what I will be saying every time I wear these socks.
