Waving Lace Socks

Pattern: Waving Lace from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Lorna's Laces in Lakeview
Needle: s.b. dpns size2
Cast on: August Cast off: Sept 28

I love these socks! They are super awesome. The color is gorgeous. These are my first lace socks, so I look forward to wearing them with my slippers inside or saving until next spring. Winter has come, termination dust has hit the hills. There was snow in the valley three days ago, but thankfully it didnt stick!

WIP- Campanulas for a Cure are both cast on and past both heels, working towards the cuff. I wound the J.Knits in two unequal balls, so the first sock to be finished will be the smallest ball and I will make the second sock that lenght. That is a serious advantage with the toe-up socks. Knit until the yarn is gone!

WIP- The shawl/wrap from the Fall Dont remember the pattern name. Yarn is Alpaca Cloud from Knitpicks and addi turbos from the LYS. Havent cast on, but hope to finish it on the plane either to French Polynesia, or from. I selected Lagoon for the color to commemorate the trip. Three weeks away, with a stupid work cruise to San Diego this next weekend.

The Lakeview Waving Lace are beautiful!
what's so bad about a cruise to San Diego?? It's a nice city as cities go and it's a good hit of summer before your winter sets in. although French Polynesia will also satisfy that need!
Is it Muir that you are making with Alpaca Cloud? If so, It will be gorgeous.(warning warning alpaca cloud on addi turbos will be SUPER slippery!)
