The March 2010 Knit Picks Catalog is out, and filled with lovely things, as usual.
I was fortunate to be able to work on a project for this catalog - the Emma Lace Socks. The pattern is from A Cuff Above, the yarn used is Stroll in Carnation.
This one shows the color accurately.
The sock is knit cuff down, has a heel flap and gusset heel, and a toe construction I'd never done before. The decreases aren't 4 sts every other round, instead there are several decreases in a round followed by several rows with no decreases (the number changes), and produces a rounded toe. There is also no Kitchener stitching at the end, so if that was keeping you from trying sock knitting, here's a pattern you can fearlessly do.
Sorry about the photo quality. This one was taken on my cell phone, and the color is not remotely accurate.
Of course, I completely forgot to take a picture of the completed socks before mailing them off, but you can see them on p. 4 of the catalog, or on the website.
