Waving Lace in Bamboo Hedge

I started this pattern and finished the first sock pretty quickly but made and remade the second one several times. I tried to knit this in the company of much conversation and ended up ripping it all the way back--just saw too many oops! in the waving lace to be happy with it. I needed to save my knitting for alone time-made most of the second sock while alone in one evening with an old movie playing. It was worth it! As these are for me, I kept on knitting picturing them against our bamboo hedge all completed and it is all I hoped for! I followed the instructions as given-no changes this time. The yarn is called Step by Austermann in greens. It is a superwash that is made with aloe vera and jojoba oil in the yarn so it will be a mini spa each time I wear them!

The socks look great & the background setting is very appropriate.
