This Lace is Waving!

I finished my Raspberry Lace socks! I really liked this pattern - its pretty and its easy to memorize, so once I got it going, I could knit it without looking at the pattern chart. The details: Tess Yarn's sock yarn - not sure of the color, size 1 US needles, using the Waving Lace Socks patter from IK Spring 2004. I really enjoyed working with this yarn. I'd never used it before and I'm glad I have two more skeins of it. It really reminds me of Lorna's Laces, but its slightly cheaper ($15 a big skein = 1 pair of socks versus $19.00 for two small skeins = 1 pair of socks). I don't know if both companies start with the same yarn before dyeing, but the two yarns are definitely similar.

In family news, yesterday was Caleb's last day of preschool. He loves school so much and I really hope that he holds on to that love of school as he gets older. He's sad that the school year is over, but these last few weeks have felt like there have been so many school activities, that there hasn't been time for much else. I'm looking forward to some lazy summer days - but first I've got to get my house clean! I hope you all have a great weekend.

Lovely socks! We seem to be living parallel lives a bit, although my DS finishes preschool at the end of June. This time of year is so hectic with end of year activities everywhere, school, dance class, church, Girl Scouts, etc. I am also looking for some less structured time! But first to get through the next couple of weeks...

Gorgeous socks. I'm going to have to see if I've got that issue of IK.
