{Socks Finished, More Started}

Here's the socks I finished in the Lorna's Laces I bought:

I'm actually not super stoked about them.  Whenever I do lace socks it seems like I make them a little large for my feet, and they don't fit my ankles really well either. 

The Lorna's Laces was wonderful to work with and they make a solid feeling pair of socks, but I wasn't as thrilled with the colour.  They're a little too muddy for me.  But I dig the subtle blue stripe, so I didn't think it was worth just not knitting them.  And I DO like the ankle sock length too.  It's good to know that I can get a pair of socks out of one 50 g skein.

I've cast on and frogged one sock already this week because it was too small.  Now I've decided that I want a pair of socks I don't have to concentrate on too much.  I've cast on a pair of Mock Cable Socks in my new Pagewood Farms purple yarn.  I'm lovin' them! I love the ones I made Mr. Pie in the Zen Yarn Garden last summer, but they're too big for me, so I want my own pair now.

I also think I'll cast on this scarf Just Enough Ruffles  in my handspun alpaca that my Mum got me for Christmas, and then after that maybe a simple triangle scarf in some black alpaca and the suri silk.  So... to cast on something new, or keep working on what I have goin'? hmmm....


  1. I love the mock cable socks. I gave away the pair I made, but I will make another pair for me!

  2. Cute socks! The color is interesting and light enough to see the pattern!

  3. Oh what a lovely scarf. I haven't always been the biggest fan of lace socks, I find them a little too tedious, but yours look lovely.
