Blackrose Socks

The Blackrose socks are completed, and I'm much happier with the yarn in this pattern than I was with Inlay.

Blackrose socks (mine ravelled here) knit in Berocco Comfort 

They were really simple. The lace chart was 8 rows and 4 of them were plain, and you only worked the lace on 17 stitches in each round and the rest is just knit knit knit knit. I love that the left and right are mirror images of one another. I think it's a detail that makes all the difference.

Don't worry, though. Inlay will have its day in the sun fluorescent office light. I'm planning to knit in once I figure out the proper yarn. I think the key is a ROUND yarn, so I'm thinking Blue Moon's Socks that Rock.

Just to give you fair warning, I'm doing gift knitting right now, so I can't post about it. It's pretty, and hopefully I'll remember to chat about it once I give it away... in September. If you want to see it and you're on Ravelry, click here.

  1. What color are you thinking for Inlay? still gray? if so, maybe Stormy Weather or Winter Solstice?
    Ps. Blackrose = good choice! They look great!
