In musical terms, a grace note is an extra note(s) that acts as an embellishment and is not essential to the harmony of the music.
I kept thinking of grace notes when I knitted these socks.
I am very happy with the leg of the sock, but less happy with the motif on the foot. More tweaking is required. The initial motif came from the book “The Very Easy Guide to Lace Knitting” by Lynne Watterson.
The yarn is the lovely alpaca sock yarn (Awesome Alpaca) from Fibre Alive in Scottish Moors. You may remember I initially showed them to you as Hedgerow socks, only I decided I didn’t like it in that pattern and it needed to be knitted in a light and airy pattern instead!
