It looks wonderful and love the yarn. I have a book called Sensational Socks and she put patterns in the back and they are fun to just pick and knit into socks. I think once you can knit a sock, you can pretty much put any pattern on them without having the actual sock pattern. WTG, nice job! (Don't you wonder though when they make all the mistakes how their finished product came out ok???)

The pattern is right in the places that really matter (like the pattern!), and if you've knitted socks before you can quite easily interpret the "instructions" for the heel and other parts, but if you were using this pattern to knit your very first pair you'd be in serious trouble!

It's odd little things like in the info section it tells you the pattern is written for dpns, but a bit further down it says how easy it is to modify the pattern so you can use dpn's! The heel info may not be wrong but it's very confusingly written... and then after the gusset it goes straight in to the toe! Where's the foot??! It took me about five reads to realise that the foot instruction is one tiny sentence bundled in with the gusset.

That said, the lace section is well written and easy to follow and that's the bit I needed to be good!

I'm working on a pair of toe-ups. I wonder how that lace would look upside down on the sock top. What'cha think?

Mighty fine GG!

The only caveat is that it's worked over multiples of 10, it had me decrease from 64 to 60 stitches on a set up round before starting on the lace. So make sure you have the right number of stitches available.

I've just got the toes done so far, I've got 44 sts in sport weight so that means I'd add 6. It might work. I'll have a while to think about it. Thanks!

When the pattern had me decrease 4 stitches before beginning the lace, the explanation was that lace knits up looser than normal knitting, so you might want to consider going down to 40 stitches and not up to 50.

Perfect pairing of yarn and pattern stitch! Love the colorway. It's playing real nice with the pattern stitch! Great work!
