My September socks continue my love affair with toe-up construction. These are Coupling, from this issue of Knitty. But, I wasn't wild about the provisional cast on for the toe, so I actually just used the toe-up pattern from Ann Budd's article on toe up socks in Summer 07 Interweave Knits.
The lace pattern wasn't too bad. It got a little boring towards the end, but that's part of why the socks are so short. That, and I can't bear to knit tall socks in warm weather. The thought just makes my feet sweat.
The yarn is Knit Picks Risata, which is really soft. It's not too warm, either, meaning I get to wear these right away!
