FO- Twinkle Toes
Doesn't this colour just scream spring to you? It's Louet Gems Sport weight in Goldilocks. The pattern is Twinkle Toes and they were a fast knit. They were my first toe ups, first short row heel, first time using a lace chart without translating it first.

I think they turned out pretty well. I liked using sport weight because it knits up faster, but I like how fingering weight turns out a little more I think. I bought two skeins because I thought I would need both, but it turns out it only took one.
