Socks and a cardigan

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of the socks I'm working on, and the $1.50 cardigan.

The first lace repeat and part of the stockinette of the $1.50 cardigan (it called for reverse stockinette, but I don't care much for the look of it, so I used plain stockinette instead). The lace looks small and tight to me, not open like in the picture. I went up a few needles sizes, but it still looks a little off. I'm hoping a good stern blocking will help.

Proving it's tough to get a picture of your own foot. This is just at the beginning of the heel of the Dublin Bay sock. It's so soft!

A better view of the lace-work.

And the Tofutsies sock. I thought it would be perfect for summer-y anklets. So far I like the yarn. I didn't care for the texture at first, but I'm actually really starting to like it.

Renaissance Yarns (my LYS) is having their one year anniversary this weekend, so I'm going to go check it out. They're having good sales and door prizes and all sorts of stuff. I think I may get more Tofutsies.

I like the color of the socks. and the open lacework on the sides is very striking. Looking forward to seeing the finished pictures.

Thanks! I've just got to get myself to finish the heel; short rows can be so tedious and fiddly (but they look so nice, it's worth it).
