Before you start thinking “Wow! She sure made a lot of progress since yesterday” I’ll tell you that I actually started this sock last week and then had to set it aside for a few days to work on something on deadline. I just picked it up again last night, right before starting the heel turn.
But it’s coming along and looking okay, I think. I’m going to call the design “Catriona” because the lace panel up the front has a Celtic look, I think, and I happen to like the name Catriona.
(Also, I just finished reading the novel Raven Black by Ann Cleeves and there was a murder victim named Catriona in the story.)
I started the center lace panel while I was still doing the toe increases.
You know. Just to be different.
I’ve decided to make this a kneesock. I’ve started the increases up the back of the leg, as you might be able to see in this photo.
I was unsure about this colorway with this pattern when I first started — would it be too much variegation? But I think it works. Hard to tell from a photo, but it real life, the lace pattern shows up nicely.
Thanks for weighing in with your favorite sock yarns yesterday. It seems as though a lot of you like the same yarns I do. So many sock yarns, so little time . . .
In closing, Lucy is gonna be so mad at me when she sees I’ve posted this photo . . .
