FO: Fan Lace Socks
Well, I finally finished these! I've been working on them for about three months. My college classes have kept me busy, so I only got to work on them on the weekends. Plus, I had completed one sock and realized it was too big, so I had to frog it and start over.

Anyhow, here they are! It's the pattern from SKS. They were my first toe-up socks. I made them out of Regia, and the color is Surf. They were done on size 2 dpns. Oh, and I did two different bind off's. I kind of experimented. One was the picot bind off from the second SKS book, but it was really hard, and I messed up on it. I did a ribbed bo for the second sock, but it's kind of tight. Lesson learned...

The first picture is a comparison of the first sock that I later frogged (on the right) and the second one (left) after I went down in needle size.




Here is the completed pair, in the correct gauge.







And a close-up of the pattern:

Really lovely socks - worth the wait - I have this book but haven't made a sock yet! Did you find the pattern easy to follow - they look so nice and not at all bulky

Once I got the hang of the pattern, the rounds went quickly. It's a lace pattern, so you have lots and lots of yo's. I learned to count my lace stitches every lace round (every other round is simple k stitches with a few p's thrown in -- I didn't have to count on those rounds).

It's actually a 12 stitch, eight row/round repeat, so it's not too bad. I memorized it after the first sock.

That's exactly what I thought! That's kind of why I chose the pattern. I live very close to the beach, so it's appropriate.

Thanks for all of the nice comments, everyone. I just couldn't wait to post these!
