Vog On Sock The First

I completed my first Vog On Sock over the weekend (yes, I will have to knit a second one). I really like the stitch pattern on these socks. It's a lace pattern, but it lies very flat while you're working it, without blocking. Most lace patterns really NEED blocking, but this one looks fine straight off the needles. It looks good opened up a bit, but that's not really necessary.
The reason I mention this is because one of the big problems with lace garments is how do you compensate for blocking when you're working the piece? Gauge swatches have less to with reality in lace knitting than they do in other types of stitch patterns due to the enormous amount of stretch they have. I'm thinking I might play around with this stitch pattern a bit and see what I can come up with.

Pretty! The lace is actually a LOT like the gull lace in the February Baby/Lady Sweater, and yes, it's wonderful in those garments because it doesn't need to be stretched out to be lacy, so you truly can try on the sweater as you go.
