Another pattern I have messed about with is Kali Kardia by Josie Kitten, my blog chum.
I think its very clever to produce your own pattern and very generous to offer it free on Ravelry but I'm not sure how she is going to feel about me adapting it. I didn't read the pattern properly and instead of knitting one row purling the next between the chequer board rib, I knitted two rows. I then pulled it out and following the pattern but decided that I actually preferred the mistake so pulled it out again and went back to knit two rows.
It's a jolly nice pattern to knit which ever way you do it, I always like it when the pattern follows nicely down the top of the foot and the instructions are very clear, it helps I find to use the right ply yarn.I am currently waiting for the Danes to arrive, sitting in an immaculately presented penthouse. Mr FF has even moved the satellite dish he brought back from Italy but now cannot find a use for out of the second bathroom into the loft. Life just gets better and better.
