Nana's Baudelaire Socks
Here are a pic of the Baudelaire socks I knit for my Nana's birthday, fun knit! I didn't get any pics of them on feet though so it's hard to see the lace.

The yarn is Regia Stretch, and it was not my favorite to work with. The colorway reminds me of a lake. It's really not a great colorway for this pattern...but it my Nana picked out the yarn and I wanted to test out this pattern and not get bored with neverending rounds of stockinette. They still look nice in person though!

No you don't! I knit socks toe-up, two at a time on two circular needles, or one long circ via Magic Loop. I've never even bothered to attempt dps.

They look great. I made that pattern too and enjoyed it very much. I love the heel on it, it fits so well. I'm sure your Nana will love them.

I think there lovely. I have used Regia stretch also and although I didn't really like using it the socks wash lovely and keep their shape. Your Nana is going to be so pleased with them.
