Pondering the possibilities for my sock pal, who likes a longer leg, I’m leaning pretty heavily toward the “Ribbed Cycling or Golf Stockings with Fancy Cuff in Trellis Pattern” from Nancy Bush’s Knitting Vintage Socks. I have some leftover Cherry Tree Hill in the Winterberry colorway that will make a nice background for the cuff pattern, and I’m leaning toward Lorna’s Laces Grapevine for the body of the sock.

Interestingly, I’m not finding examples of this particular pattern out there in the blogosphere, so I have no idea how the knitting will go. I’m glad my feet are nearly the same size as my pal’s so that I can be pretty certain they’ll fit before I send them.
