Hi everyone - I would love to see some of the LL colorways knit into socks. I find that sometimes what I envision in my head isn't at all like what the yarn turns into once knitted so I was wondering if you'd all mind sharing pics of your socks (or other items) knit with LL colorways.

I'm especially curious to see Black Purl & Sherbert but also so many others!

anyway - I just wanted to see what they looked like knitted up!
thanks!

One way to find more results than you may get like this is to do a forum search. Near the top of the page it says "Search" then click "advanced search". From there you can type in Lorna's Laces and click the What'cha Knittin' forum and you'll see lots of finished objects made with that yarn. Sometimes you'll just get someone mentioning it, but I found a lot of socks and stuff. :thumbsup:

I posted a pair of anklets done in the pink/white Lorna's laces. I probably posted this in May in the Whatcha Knitting forum. I tried to do a quick search but wasn't patient enough for the results. Take a peek though. My anklets turned out great! The color combo is really pretty...very feminine.

I've had some luck searching flickr (http://www.flickr.com) for lorna's laces to see pictures of people's completed socks. It depends on people tagging their photos properly though.

I don't know if you're on Ravelry or not, but if you are, that is a great place to check. If it happens you're not, I did it for you, a bit!

I found two socks, and Not-Sock something, people have made in that Black Purl colour. I couldn't find the other colour on the LL website, so I don't know what it looks like.

I'm just going to use the links, because they're not my photos to hotlink.
