I love the detail of the French heel and the star toe (but used a standard 1K 1P rib 'cos I couldn't figure out the one she designed).
Thank you Mona Schmidt.
Emma, Sharon and Shrodinger - thank you for your kind comments.
I hope you knit this one too - it is a pleasure to knit!
Jannyraye - Yup, I always have to go down a size or two - these are on #0!
Tey and del- I'm glad you like the recipe. I'll post a favorite from time to time... Cooking is one of my other loves (not that I actually have time for it!).
JoanM - I hope you give socks a try. The patterns can be so lovely and lacy. Do you think this would translate well into, say a scarf?
Hey Mer- if you are out there, how is your second sock coming?
I have just cast on #2, so I must get back to it ~ no second sock syndrome today. Tomorrow may be a different story......
