One of those decisions.............

Waving Lace: I love this pattern, I really do. It's not a hard knit and the finished sock is so worth the time. I've used KnitPick's Gloss in Serengeti, a lovely nice thick sock yarn. Look at this lovely heel......
the gusset............and just a hint of the pattern...........lovely isn't it.......................there's only one thing....................I don't love these two together. I finally decided this when I got half way thru the foot section. This yarn, while very nice is just too thick for this pattern. I've had to make several adjustments to the pattern and I can see something now in the bottom photo that I hadn't noticed before....if you look close enough you'll catch it too. But even with that, I had already decided..........when I get home tonight........I've got frogging to do.
Don't despair.....I've ordered some Lorna's Lace in solid colors.....I know one of them will be just right for this sock. In the mean time, this yarn goes back to the stash until I find another sock in this book that I think it will do justice to.
Now, which pattern next???.......................hhhhmmnm..................

Well I think it looks lovely either way, but I totally know that you have to love your project to really want to finish it.

It's a lovely sock and a very nice pattern, but you must be pleased with it or you'll just hate working on it. I just started on with CTH Supersock which is heavier than Lorna's Laces. I'll see how it goes.
