FO Friday

I so love that I have finally finished these socks. These are the Waving Lace socks from Favorite Socks. They are awesomely stretchy and I so love everything about the pattern. The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy in the colorway Ruby River. The subtle color transitions in the yarn are really beautiful. I can't say enough great things about these socks and I am looking very forward to wearing them.

I did my usual cast on but this time I did an increase round and then knit a round with no increases. I didn't really like how it looked on the doomed Grasshopper socks, but I started realizing that the pattern on some of my socks was starting really far down my toe, so I decided to try lengthening the toe and see how I like it, and I think I actually prefer how it looks. Not that I dislike my previous knitting work, I think I might just like this better.

Anyways, what is going otn next are the Marigold Socks in my precious skein of Yarntini in the Vintage colorway. Here is the skein awaiting cast on:

My yarn is the self striping variety, and I am absolutely DYING to see these socks cast on. I really loved Sandra's self striping socks, I cannot wait to see them in the Vintage colorway.
