Baudelaire


My new socks: Baudelaire by Cookie A. They've taken many months; I bought the wool about a year ago! Only tried them on when I was well past the heel on the first one, and realised I needed to make the medium size, not the small. I'm quite proud of myself that I ripped it and started again.... maybe now I'll learn to swatch for socks. (Hmm... maybe not.)

The lace pattern is easy to memorise, despite what I initially thought was a counter-intuitive decrease. And I learned how to do a sewn bind-off.

Strangely enough, that's the same sock in both pictures. Got a lot to learn about lighting.
