This lace rib sock pattern is my first attempt at knitting lace. I have to admit that the socks were started and unraveled many times (four, I think?), as I wrapped my head around knitting lace. However, once I got into the rhythym of it, I found that the pattern was easy to memorize and the socks knit up quickly. I think I may attempt cables next. Or perhaps knitting intarsia. Yikes. The name itself scares me!
