The Rainy Day Socks are DONE and I’m really pleased with them. The lace stitch pattern is really simple, knits up fast, but looks cute.
The yarn is typical Novita and nothing spectacular, but it compliments the stitch pattern nicely. It also behaved nicely and didn’t pool. Instead, I have these funky ladderstep/lightning-shaped stripes in the sock soles. :)

Now I’ll take a week’s pause from sock knitting (although I did swatch a bit lot for my next project) because… Summer of Socks 2007 kicks off June 21st! I already have the first pattern and yarn picked out but I’m gonna have to do some tweaking with the pattern cause apparently my gauge is way off (that’s why the furious swatching).
