In reply to a comment left about my lace socks post (scroll down) I thought I should repeat the comment and my reply here:
Anonymous said... Those look really similiar to the Simply Lovely Lace socks from Interweave. Your inspiration?

I've ordered the back issue so I'll know better when that arrives but from the blogging pictures I've seen I would say my lace pattern is simpler (only one row in four has yo's and decreases - the other 3 being just knit. Also the IK socks aren't short row either toes or heels and I think they are knit top down. So basically apart from its being a sock and with a lace pattern it's quite different.
kathryn said... Actually, on closer inspection of other bloggers Simply Lovely Socks I think the lace pattern may well be the same. But then it is only an eyelet pattern and the simplest one I know.
I shall know better when I get my Interweave Knits Spring 06 but I certainly hadn't seen IK's pattern before although of course that lace pattern(simple eyelet) exists everywhere and I wouldn't know who to credit the original with. My method of working the sock is very different.
Maybe I'll have to choose another lace pattern.
