Here is a little peek at why I love to spin as fine a thread as I can.
If I spin a fine thread, I can knit a fine thread.
These are to become Lacey Mohair/wool Socks. I've pieced the pattern together taking snippets of information from various pages of the book "Sensational Knitted Socks", splicing in my own favorite way of doing things (toe-up, 2 on one circular, figure 8 cast on, picot bind-off) and blending until I (hopefully) have a workable pattern that will be worth knitting. I would just "wing it" without the help of the book, but knitting a heel-flap, turned heel, going toe-up is new for me. Until now I have always done Peasant Heels for toe-up socks.
