Slow progress................................

This is what I knit with last week's YPF yarn. The pattern is one I was sent last year with my Rockin Sock Club. Summer of Love Lace by J C Briar. I think it is perfect for the floral tones of my Squee Club yarn!


A lovely lacey cuff


more detail

The pattern did suggest blocking the cuff and then picking up stitches.................no way!! I just knit on, do you think it needed blocking first? :) I try never to cut yarn until a sock is finished and fits...............sad that way, I am. :)

Why go thru the extra steps when what you did looks so wonderful? You have a natural instinct for knitting - so go with it. (Beautiful sock as always.)
