February Socks

"Oh You Pretty Things" Test Knit

"Oh You Pretty Things" Test Knit

The February Socks were a test knit for Amy.  The pattern was wonderfully written and they were a very quick knit, even though it took me about eighteen days to finish them.  I used the Regia Bamboo for them and they are so soft.  I haven't worn them yet but they are washed and blocked and standing by.

The lace pattern was an easy four row repeat and I can see using it again in a scarf or perhaps a beret.  I can feel a pattern adjustment coming or perhaps I'll just write my own.  I HIGHLY recommend that you take a peak at the pattern and make a pair for yourself!

They're lovely! Well done! And kudos for sticking to your sock of the month. I fell off the wagon, HARD, and it's all because of madelinetosh pashmina...
