Just to prove I've cast on for the second sock .....


These are knit on 2.5mm circs with the very soft Fyberspates 'Ocean Forest' sock yarn with a Double Eyelet Rib pattern from page 168 of The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches (a Harmony Guide). The pattern has been modified slightly to knit in the round









And finally a picture of the finished Falling in Love socks.

Those are some long socks! And lace, too! They are gorgeous; I love the colour. Persevere--don't let the Sea Wool get the better of you. Remember Odysseus' trials on the Sea, Scylla and Charybdis and the Sirens and all that, and resist the temptations of the Sea! The falling in love socks are beautiful as well. The subtle colourway really shows off that pattern to advantage.

Oops - it already did. It "fell" into my knitting bag this morning and I cast on lunch time. *blushes*

So that means I need to have a night working on the knee highs to make up for it. ;-)
