These lacy socks  have an adaptation of an old lace stitch with fuchsia heads as well as twining vines with leaves winding their way up the outside and back of the leg. The unique combination of these lace patterns is perfectly mirrored on the matching sock so that the flower heads face the opposite way and the placement of the vine is reversed. The socks are knitted toe-up from a provisional cast on with short row toes and heels. A delicate picot edge finishes the top of the sock.
