Cute, aren't they? In case you can't tell, I'm modeling them in the office. Here are the specs:
Pattern: Simply Lovely Lace Socks from IK Spring '06 issue
yarn: Knit Picks Pallette in red
needles: US 1 Crystal Palace DPN's (not the Brittany's that I listed in the specs of the last socks)
Mods: I made the ankle area short, I only did 6 repeats.
I have already casted on for another pair of these. This time I am using the Knit Picks Pallette in Petal. I think I'll make the ankle area longer this time, maybe 8 to 10 repeats. I love this pattern. I may even have to make a pair in the Pool color, it's such a pretty blue color, and it'll match my Cancer t-shirt.
Well, we have a bell choir concert tonight, since Katie is in that, too. That's another reason I casted on for another pair of lace socks. Something small, and the pattern is still fresh in my mind.
Here's a funny pic:
Mr. Vinny, in the corner with Annie. For some reason, he likes to stand in the corner with her whenever she's in trouble. Must be a moral support thing.
