WIP Rainy Day socks - Updated with new pics!
Boy are these a challenge! The Picot edge was the hardest thing I've ever done in knitting. Not so much the start of it (with the crochet cast on) but the folding the work in half and knitting it together with the current row while ensuring it doesn't turn into a mobius!

I'm 17 rows into the pattern part after the cuff.

This is the first time I've ventured away from either Silver sock class sock or the Simple Sock in three sizes (from socks soar on two circular needles). I'm enjoying the challenge!

The pattern is Rainy Day Socks from Magknits

Thank you =D It is Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino in cornflower blue. It is very soft to work with but it is shedding a little. That could be the freaky weather we are having here (humid and flooding) causing my hands to be too hot to knit with this yarn.
