More Socks!

Made brave (foolhardy?) by my previous success, I embarked on another sock project.

This time I cast on
Waterfall Socks by Wendy D. Johnson.
I used Spring Showers, a 75/25 merino/nylon sock yarn by inspinknitty (KnittyKnotty)

Yes, another two-at-a-time, toe-up project!

This pattern proved much more interesting than the previous one. It has a simple but pretty lace pattern.

I have thick ankles and broad legs (you wanted to know that, didn't you?) so I wanted a nice stretchy cast-off. A bit of research led me to Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off, so I tried it.

The finished socks.

A pretty pattern.
I think there could be more socks in my future.

Thanks for putting up links to the patterns, Dragonstar. I love free patterns! Perhaps I will actually knit some socks....
