Socks for Spring - Bairnswear 182
The booklet has socks for rambling, for tennis, for skating, for golf, and for badminton . . . so for every summer activity a modern woman should be engaged in. And being short, you can whip them up in no time.
One of the patterns (for golf socks) uses something called E-Lace-Tic which seems to be a wide elastic with holes punched along the top and bottom. I made these but couldn't find a modern equivalent so did a couple of tight 1x1 ribbing and then picked up the cuff stitches after finishing the rest of the sock.
