One is better than none

So I was going to wait to post the Baudelaire socks until I finished the second, but then I got realistic. My daughter has decided that she no longer likes to nap during the day, so there hasn't been much time for anything, let alone knitting another lacy sock. I have gone so far as to start the toe on the second, so it's not like there won't be a pair at some point in the future. But for now, I figure I'll show you one. One is better than none, right? Plus I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out, considering it's my first sock.

Please don't ask me why the red is completely different in every picture I take of these socks. I've just had to accept that my camera does not do red. In reality they are probably a bit darker than these pictures suggest.

Oh, and here's a little treat for the eyes: Lorna's Laces in Old Rose.

I'll be using it to make the Traveler's Stockings that Grumperina has up on her site, same color and everything. What can I say... when I see something I love, I just have to copy it : ).
