Simply lovely lace socks

These are Karen Baumer's Simply lovely lace socks from the Spring 2006 Interweave Knits. The pattern worked really well and fits me perfectly.

Knitted in Seawool from Creatively Dyed that I bought at Stitches 2008. I used 2mm dpns. The yarn is a blend of 70% superwash merino and 30% seacell (a tencel-like fibre based on seaweed). The yarn was lovely to knit with and has a nice soft hand.

I had meant to do a star toe on these - but found myself decreasing for the toe while we were away so I stuck with my regular toe. I think the star would have looked prettier with this pattern.

Nice socks!
I rather like seawool (though the only skein I've used so far had lumps of seacell through it and it was Hand Maiden!).
