Love! I am completely in love with my new striped knee socks. They validate my burgeoning relationship with knitting socks in general. I almost feel like I don’t know why I’d ever knit anything besides knee socks. (Almost. I’ve just cast on for a sweater.) Ah, knee socks—you keep my boot from rubbing my calf. You provide a comfortable double layer for the part of my body that is below the hem of my coat without the double waistband of long johns.
The thing about most socks patterns is that the socks are not very tall. They usually come only a bit above the ankle. I want them taller. Is this possible, o seasoned sock knitters? Where do I put calf increases in a lace sock?
