Rainy Day Socks (or should I say *sock*)

One down, one to go. The second one will have to wait. This was quite a challenge for me, even though the lace pattern is quite simple and easy to remember.

Things I have learned while knitting these socks:
  • comedic television and knitting do not go together at all (particularly The Chaser's War on Everything)
  • Playgroup and knitting anything other than stocking stitch do not mix well either
  • I am not good at frogging lace
  • I am now an excellent "un-knitter"
I think I spent more time *un-knitting* these than knitting them. Oh and I might add that there is a couple of mistakes in the, despite my frequent un-knitting. Grrrrr. Anyway, don't let my struggles put you off if you want to knit this sock. The problems I had were more to do with me than the pattern.
Ok, maybe I should include some specs?

Pattern: Rainy Day Socks

Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino in Pink (#340006)

Needles: 3.5mm 100cm circular (Knit Picks), magic-loop

I shall post a pic in here when I finally finish the other one, but I'm putting it down for now.
