Lovely lacy socks

Filed under: Knitting — yarnnut @ 5:41 am

Yeah!!! They are fini!
two lovely lacy socks
This is to prove that two are actually finished.
Waldo and my socks!
Waldo loves wool. And these socks are no exception!
Pattern: “Simply lovely lacy socks” –> Interweave Knits Spring 2006
Needles: Clover bamboo DPNs, size 0.
Yarn: Opal Pearl in Pink. Just like the magazine 🙂
Comments: I didn’t do the picot edge, mainly because I couldn’t get it to look right. So I used the ribbed cuff instead. I think they’re still lovely. Sorry for the yellow lighting. Maybe I’ll take some pictures in tomorrow’s daylight. The pattern itself is a very simple lacy pattern, very easy to remember. It’s perfect for a beginning sock knitter who has already knit a pair of socks. I loved everything about this project, the pattern and the yarn. I may try this again using the magic loop method.

My doggies are the cutest. Here is one more picture for your enjoyment. Again, sorry for the yellow lighting. Wendy and Waldo are spending the night here with me and found their way under the covers. Isn’t it funny how dogs love snuggling underneath the covers.


Well, it’s 2 weeks until my big test. One of my friend’s told me that she got questions on erectile dysfunction drugs. Now if the whole point of the NCLEX is to make sure that I’m a safe nurse, what does erectile dysfunction drugs have to do with that. Oh well, back to studying! Or maybe watch ER….



  1. LOVE the socks!!

  2. Great socks and I love yout new page layout. Dogs are too cute – when are you gonna get a shot of them in some handknits for me?
    ED? Well, that whole “if you have an erection lasting more than 4 hours” thing – I would be getting some serious medication intervention!

  3. reminds me of a good story from my er days when a guy came in who was having chest pain, we asked him if he had recently taken viagra or any other such drug (giving nitro w/ viagra on board may cause severe hypotension.) he said no, but i could tell he was lying through his teeth. when i left the room, his buddy came out and told me the pt had taken viagra but didn’t want his wife, who was standing next to the cot, to know. i later quietly scolded him for lying to the nurse and cheating on his wife and he was very embarrassed. ahhh, the power of a nurse!!
