So for Christmas I got the book Socks From the Toe Up, so of course I needed to make my first pair asap! But of course I also got Socks 2-at-a-time for Christmas also, so I needed to see if I could apply this thought to toe up socks the same as top down socks. So I did. And made the Ribbed Ribbon Socks, and when I got them finished and blocked, I wore them to show my mother, and she took them. Shelike the socks so much she took them off my feet and made me sockless. It is 15 degrees F outside with 2 or 3 inches of snow on the ground and I have no socks because she loved my first work with lace so much.

So now I started on a new pair of socks, cause I lost mine. So now I start on the Dead Simple Lace Socks, and I am using my Dyeabolical Strong Arm Sock Yarn, dyed right here in St. Louis, MO. So the yarn looked superb on the skein, and great on the ball, but knitting up, the stripes are kinda pooling, and I hope it looks better when all finished. The colorway is beautiful but I'm just not sure. More pictures on the new socks to come. These are pictures of the Ribbed Ribbon Socks that my mom took. They were made using Alpaca Sox yarn.
