I am making the first of 2 pairs of socks from the April CookieA sock club.  Using my own stash yarn for these, it is a Lorna’s Laces sock yarn.

Knitting it up, the colors remind me of the southwest.  The lace pattern is very easy to remember, 4 repeats in a row, then 3 rows of stockinette stitch.  I started with the large size, and it seemed too big (I wasn’t reading the pattern first, where you decrease after the top ribbing), so I went down to the medium.   With the stretch of the lace, this fits just fine.  Not sure if these are for me or to give away.  I still am surprised sometimes by how yarn knits up.  I usually prefer not to have striping, but pooling instead.  This has a combination of the two.
