I'm not really a designer, you know, but I try.

Angelia wanted to claim the socks I made for my Mom, so I have started making some just for her.

I did some research, reading her KH blog as well as her other blog, and chose pink as the color for her personalized socks.

After some consideration, I have decided to embark into true "design world" and make my first sock pattern, using the Angelia-appropriate "Cat's Paw Lace" design on the leg. Neat-O!

So far, I'm still doing the ribbing, because I'm using size 1 needles. This is going to be a LONG project. But, the vintage baby wool wouldn't work right with size 2 needles. So, that's that.

Thanks for the encouragement! I've never designed socks before, so this will be a good experience for me.

I just finished the first set of "cat's paws".

I decided to switch to size 2 needles at the lace portion to make it more lacy.

Well, dagnab it! I had to frog it all last night, because the lace section was HUGE. (I don't think Angelia has legs as big as a linebacker) :rollseyes:

Soooo, I have decided to reduce the cast on number, and add a nylon thread to carry along to make the yarn thicker. I think it will give the socks a bit more body as well. :thumbsup:

I'll post different photos when I get at least an inch done.
