The first time I saw traditional Lithuanian knitted socks was on a photo of dancers wearing reproductions of the National Costume. The women’s socks were knit in a wheat lace pattern made out of white yarn, and you could only see the pattern when they lifted the hem of their long skirts. The originals were knee socks, but I wanted to create a pair that was quick to knit and that fit into my more casual lifestyle. These socks have the quickest heel turn that I’ve ever knit and a toe that does not require any Kitchener stitch!
