Anniversary Socks

I loved the lace pattern so I made it both front and back of the leg. Did have to adjust the cast on to only 56 sts as the yarn was not as fine as the yarn used for the instructions. I made the cuff a simple k1p1. It sure doesn't look as classy as the one pictured in the book-but that is half the fun of trying new yarns for the same pattern! This is the second time I purchased the same colorway of superwash wool roving which is hand-dyed from Jenya Loves Fiber, an EBay store. It spun up beautifully and I was able to spin it even finer this time-practice does improve skills! (The sock holders are a recent post from Craftzine-see my blog for more info!)
