This is the post in which I realize the socks I am making are an almost exact copy of the ever-so-popular Jaywalker socks. I really hate the example photo shown on the pattern, which is probably why I didn't want to knit these.
I do like my version a lot better, because of the lace aspect. Jaywalkers use a knit front and back of stitch increase and combine the decreases, resulting in a hole-less pattern.
There's no such thing as plagiarism in knitting, is there? Just reverential borrowing.
