FO - Ankle Socks w/Lorna's Laces
Here's my latest FO. I used this pattern, which I must say was not my favorite. The toe on the first sock wound up too small, so I had to frog back. Being a somewhat experienced sock knitter, this pair had me . Go figure...on something so small!

Anyhow, I just love the yarn, and the fit turned out really good.

Thanks for looking!

Now, THERE'S a set of ankles that would have led 19th century men to faint! Nice job and I also like the colour.

Hmmm...I wonder if my "History of the Old South" class will cover this?!

Good thing you can't tell that those are hairy ankles. I tend to take the weekends off from shaving since I dress up for work during the week.

Ooh, they look really cute! It looks like a tiny little sock with a nice, tight fit - just like the socks I used to wear all the time before I knit so many Great work, as always!!!

Honestly, the fit is not overly tight. I don't know if it's the yarn or my skills. The fit is just perfect!

Thanks so much for the nice words. The pictures really do not do justice to the color. They are really "girly." I highly recommend this yarn to anyone who wants to make something for a froo-froo gal.
