Devon Sock, Or Actually Just Devon Leg

DSC02675
I've knitted my first Devon Sock down to the place where the heel flap will begin.  This is a pretty easy sock to knit, but I made it harder on  myself than I should have by not getting a Post It note to keep track of where I am on the chart.  I don't know why it took me so long to realize that I was losing my place and going crosseyed, but I had knitted 1-1/2 repeats before I got smart and grabbed the sticky note.  Once I got my place marked, I zipped through the other repeats for the leg.  

I'm really enjoying this design and the yarn is such a happy color.  It's actually much more lacy than in photographs, both here in my blog, and in the book.  I think the Yarn Overs (for any non-laceknitters out there, Yarn Overs are what make the holes in lace) tend to hide under the diagonal decrease lines, making them seem to disappear.  Once I get the socks knitted, I'll try to get a picture of them on - surely the glow from my pasty legs will shine through the YO's.
