bless my little cotton (ankle) socks

the days after festivus have been a whirl of too much sun, some bad dvds (and some good), long walks and swims, and yesterday a bevy of inlaws involving three teenage boys (eeck) and fish and chips in kiama. in amongst all that i have managed to finish sock number one of the Vog Ons in Lana Grossa Millenweit Cotton Fun:

after a rather tricky picot cast on, these turn out to be a joy to knit. the simple lace is perfect for the cotton, as is the whole ankle thing as there is no way in hell this yarn would make socks that stay up of their own accord. they are super quick to make and light and comfy as a feather. and whats more, i will get two whole pairs from 100g, so someone else is going to get a pair of cotton ankle socks as well.

if i wasnt becoming so exhausted from DOING stuff with my holidays i might get the other one knitted soon. i will be glad when trent goes back to work so i can relax!! ;-)

That's a fantastic sock - I have that yarn in a different colourway and you've found the perfect pattern.

Happy New Year. :)
