The Socks that would not be - Are!
The Pretty Petals are done - much to my disbelief!! These were almost chucked a few times. The pattern is beautiful, but I made so many changes, and so many false starts - well, I am glad they finally ARE. And, I am pleased - pretty much. I still need to perfect the percentages on the Short Row Heel, but the fit is getting better.
I used 2.25mm Pony Pearls DPNS, dropping down to a 2.0mm for the heel and toes. The yarn is Lisa Souza, and as always - I love the feel!! It is so soft to work with, and yummy to wear!!
Now, off to finish the Hippy Chunky socks, and then....???
