Black Purl Socks

Specs:Pattern: Simply Lovely Lace Socks, Spring 2006 IK

Yarn: Lorna's Laces, Black Purl colorway. I used just barely over one skein

Needles: size 2 Crystal Palace DPNs

Comments: I did the cast on for 60 stitches, and did the Picot cuff - which I must say - I LOVE!!! I'll be using this a lot. Very cute, very easy.Also, I did NOT knit through the back loops, as it says to in the pattern. Why - because I didn't want to, that's why... I tried it for awhile, hated it, didn't want to be stressed while knitting... and so, there. I just didn't. So, my socks don't have those twisted stitches, but hey - it saved my sanity and I still think they're "Simply Lovely."
