Fo: modified rainy day socks

i see a couple more people have been working on these also, so hopefully everyone is not bored of seeing these! i realllllllllly enjoyed working on these because i love socks and looooooove not boring socks. these had just enough pattern to keep me interested but it was easy to memorize. i am calling these “modified” because i chose not to do the picot-edge but rather to just do a simple 2x1 rib. i used debbie bliss baby cashmerino in poppy…i love this yarn. so soft and squishy. thanks for looking!

I love them! I’ve been wanting to make those socks, but have been intimidated by the picot edge. They look beautiful with the ribbing, too. Gorgeous color – don’t ya love cashmerino?

Those are gorgeous - I love the color and sheen of the yarn. Great job.

I love the colour. Great job

Love them!! Great job!

Those are soooo pretty!

I am so glad that i have seen your picture of these lovely socks…I pirnted off the pattern earlier and was wondering about the picot edge…I am going to do k1 p1 like you have.

They are VERY nice!!!


yeah, i tried doing the picot edge and i had a little bit of difficulty. it’s actually a k2 p1 ribbing that aligns with the lace pattern. just do a k1 p2 k2 p2 k1 repeat for the ribbing and it will align with the lace pattern.

Those are just GORGEOUS!!! :inlove: :cheering: I was thinking about maybe making those my first knitted sock project, because I think they’re just beautiful, but I too was going to omit the picot edge. I think it puts all of the focus on the pretty pattern that way. I just finished a project using Cashmerino for the first time, and I loved that yarn–maybe I’ll do my socks using it, too!

Very pretty! I think I prefer them without the picot edge!:cheering:

They are beautiful. The sheen and color of the yarn is gorgeous. I think the rib looks just as nice as the picot edge. :cheering:

:inlove: gorgeous! you did a great job!!! :inlove:

Your socks are great!!! I love this pattern and the yarn you chose is beautiful. It definately does the pattern justice. -Ve

:inlove: so pretty… I love that color…

The color you selected shows off the pattern so well! This is a pattern I’ve had my eye on for quite some time, but I’ve read so many things about sizing issues that I’ve been a bit leery. Your success is encouraging.

Wonderful job!
