Purple Feet

Pattern:  Blackrose
Designer: Suzi Anvin
Yarn:  Brown Sheep Wildfoote Luxury Sock
Modification:  Moved the lace pattern two stitches instep-wards so that the first stitch on my needle would not be a ssk.
I have a very visible ladder problem here on the lace edges.  It creates a piping effect which makes the lace stand out a tad more. I can live with that but still wish it was not there.  It's so frustrating.  I pull and tug, yet still...ladders!
Love this yarn!  I picked it up last year at the Knitomatic Boxing Week sale having no previous knowledge of the brand.  What a great, sturdy and pretty yarn with which to knit lace.  It comes in so many colours too.  I may just grab some more this year if Haley still carries it.

Beautiful socks!! I have a skein of hand painted sock yarn just sitting here waiting to make myself a pair of socks as soon as it calms down after Christmas.
