Go ahead give it a try!

PS Forgot to mention this is my first cuff down pair.

No worries about the edging. I thought how the heck?

But in a mattuer of minutes changed to .
Once you do it, you GET it.

Chel, loved your blog, and those Rainy day socks look sooooooo great! Left a comment.

Also loved the clogs!

P.S. The Clapotis link on your sig is broken, can you fix that? It's due to the new forum, you have to search for it and re-link. I wonder what a Clapotis is!

I say go ahead and try them! The lace isn't that hard (I started a pair but used too-thick yarn) and they'll go quickly on the large needles.

I just finished knitting them The picot bit is tricksy but the lace pattern is nice and simple. They are toasty warm. Be warned though they do come up small.

Must update with the Finished pics =D

NO way! It looks like we used the exact same yarn! What is yours?

Ariel, I've been wanting to try these. Thanks for the encouragement. I love the picot edge on them and the lace pattern is gorgeous isn't it. I printed it a while ago, but have been kinda worried it would be difficult. I'm just beginning my Monkey Socks. Have you made those yet? Not hard at all! Love your ShiTzu, by the way. We have a little rescue Shi named Angus, and two other rescue dogs and three cats! Love animals! samm

Thanks for adopting! I work with rescues. God bless you!

The socks are eaaaaaaasy. At first I didn't get the edging, you k5 rows, then do 1 row of k1, yo. Then k5 more rows then you fold it over and k2tog. that's what gives you that great edge. Then just go on to the great pattern.

A four row repeat which after a while you don't even need to look at the pattern, you just tell because it's alternating yo's. So it's easy to tell whether the current row is yo, k1 or k1, yo.

Go for it!
