Just finished my first pair of socks for myself, the Simply Lovely Lace Socks with picot trim from IK Spring 2006. I'm really happy with them and had to show them off.

Thanks, y'all! :muah:

I really like the pink, too. I'm highly suggestible (sp?) - in the magazine, the picot trim socks were in this same exact color yarn.

Itsbecca, I'm not entirely sure how long they took me. I started in June, but did only the tiniest amount before getting absorbed in Cozy (I had done maybe 1-2 inches total). Once, I picked them back up, I think it took me about 5-6 days to do the pair, but that was on vacation when I had more time to just sit and knit. I'm guessing if I had been doing them during non-vacation time they maybe would've taken me a couple of weeks. I'm guessing the sportsweight (with ribbed cuff instead of picot) would go quicker.

The pattern is easy to memorize and lots of fun. I plan on making these again sometime!

So nice.

The color reminds me of seashells....shrimp...cotton candy!

Those are so pretty - great choice of color and pattern.

Hmm...maybe I need to knit some pink socks...
