I'm making the Waving Lace socks from Favorite Socks, published by Interweave. These socks are featured on the cover of the book and are designed by Evelyn A. Clark, my favourite designer! I'm using Panda Cotton yarn from Crystal Palace for the first time. Everything you've heard about this yarn splitting is true, but I still like it very much. Here are the WIP photos. This shows the lace edging and 2.5 repeats (50 rows). What worries me more about this yarn is the rather short yardage. It's only 170 yards and after reviewing all the free patterns for this yarn on www.straw.com (Crystal Palace's web site), I think I should have purchased 3 balls instead of 2. I just frogged a sock made with Claudia yarn because I didn't have enough, so I'll make the cuff of this sock end right were it is (5.5 inches) and start the heel flap now.
I'm using a size 2 40" Addi Turbo needle (Magic Loop).
I'm not sure that I mind the splitting all that much. I rather like the texture it gives the sock, which I tried to show in these rather poor photos.
