I need your help. I've been debating the pattern for my sockpal socks for several days. I thought I had settled on Sockbug's Lacy Scallop Sock (go see Margene's here - beautiful!). So I swatched it up and learned how to do a provisional cast on and (after only ripping out one time) did up me a picot edge and started the pattern. And promptly messed up twice.
Here it is just before ripping.
I'm mad that I messed it up (though to be completely honest, if it was for me, I'd just ignore it, but I can't as it's a gift!), and I've been worried that it was too "girly" of a pattern for my pal.
So now I need your help. What pattern do I use? As it's a varigated yarn, I'm worried about what will http://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=10789997look good. My thoughts are:
Fancy Silk Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks
Feather and Fan Socks from Socks, Socks, Socks
Vine Lace Socks from Socks, Socks, Socks
New England from Knitting on the Road
Pomatomus from Knitty
Simply Lovely Lace Socks from Spring Interweave.
I can't get a blog poll to load, so leave your votes in the comments! If you need a refresher, here is the yarn I'm using.
Thanks for all your help!
