I couldn't resist

I lasted three days but this morning I wound my STR Ruby Slippers into a ball and if I have enough energy tonight, I will cast on for the first sock. I am going to try the butterfly pattern from the Fiber Arts Butterfly and Trellis pattern my Knit Sock Kit Swap partner Heide sent me. This will be my first foray into lace knitting but I think this is a nice basic pattern that should challenge me to expand my skills. Thanks again Heide!

What beautiful yarn, the socks will look amazing!!! :) One simple tip with lace knitting, don't be afraid to use more markers to help with the lace repeats.

You'll get into the rhythm of this pattern quickly and with the yarn overs the socks seem to grow faster than socks knitting in a plain stockinette stitch. Please post a picture when they're done!
