Lacy Diamonds

The stripes actually line up, my feet are just crooked. Please remind me not to use sock yarn with lots of knots in it! The first sock was fine, but I had 14 (yes, I counted) little ends to weave in so that I could have the striping match on the second sock.

If the pattern hadn't been so pretty, I would have given up. As it turned out, the socks are pretty and very spring-like and they are wonderful.

Looking forward to the May socks. Thank you for such a wonderful pattern, Anni.

they really are beautiful! Well done! I love seeing the same pattern knitted in different yarns, it just goes to show how one small change can make so much difference.

Absolutely gorgeous!!!Love the raspberry sherbet colors. Sorry to hear about all the knots. Can you share what yarn it was so that others can avoid all those ends?

It's Sockotta yarn, but I've never had a knot problem before. Sometimes life just throughs you a curve every once in a while. Lucky for me the pattern was just too pretty to abandon.

Yummy colors. Wow! 14 knots?! You would think the person would have toss the skein out! I was furious when I found 5 knots on a 50 gram lace cashmere yarn but 14 is ridiculous.
