Project Spotlight: Walnutz Sockz

My most recent finished object is the Walnutz socks by Sabine F. on Ravelry. This simple lace sock pattern was a joy to knit. I love the way the lace ribbing pattern looks knit up.

The lace pattern is very intuitive, which made this a great project to take on the go. I always like to have a project that I can take with me for those spare minutes waiting in line or if I finish my lunch early and this pattern definitely hit the bill.

I would classify this pattern as a beginner level sock pattern and is a great choice for someone who wants to try their hand at lace socks. Although, I would not recommend this pattern for someone who has never knit a pair of socks before.

I really like the heel construction on this sock. I had actually never seen a heel constructed this way before but my toe-up sock knitting experience is limited. I was actually a little concerned about the heel. I typically knit the Fish Lips Kiss heel by Sox Therapist. I have pretty narrow heels so the traditional heel flap and gusset just doesn’t fit my foot. But these socks fit great throughout the heel.

All in all, this is a great pattern and I highly recommend it. You can check out my project page here for more information.
