My socks that are for my mother are moving along slowly, mostly because I have another item I am working on for her which is a lot of planning and will take some time. I will take some pics so far of the swatch and give some ideas tomorrow.
Pattern: Ten Stitch Leafy Lace from More Sensational Knitted Socks
Needles: 1us or 2.25mm
Yarn: Sockotta (45% cotton, 40% superwash, 15% nylon)
Color: 816 - - or in my words "spring green"
Modifications: I turned it into a twelve stitch pattern so it could accomodate the size I needed.
I like the pattern and how it is working up, but in all honesty, I am not really a fan of the yarn so far. I think it is a little scratchy feeling and I don't know if I will use it again after this. It was originally chosen for it's color and I thought the yarn felt fine in the store, but working with it is a little different. I am holding most of my judgement on how the socks all knitted up feel though. We shall see.
