Thought I should make my life more complicated so cast on a lacy sock - toe up, of course. It's the Falling Leaves from knitty.com (Fall 2005) & what a pleasant surprise as I learnt a different method of shaping the toe - it's short row shaping but with yarn over - it was much easier than wrapping the stitches. The only thing that I am not very happy with is that the toe is a little too pointy for my liking. Anyway, I will try & adjust that when I use the method again. So take a look at my Falling Leaves .... I am using a 4ply handpainted merino from The Knittery - it's such a soft yarn & lovely to knit with. This yarn was leftover from a vest that I knitted so I hope I have enough for a pair!
