We have legs on the Horcrux Soxs

Here's the "lightening bolt" lace that gives these socks their name! Very cool. I'm to this point on both socks and I'm loving the Baby Ull (from Dalegarn). It's wonderfully 'cushy' and has great stitch definition.

I'm wibbling a bit over whether to continue in ribbing down from the lace or to switch to stocking stitch. I don't like the look of some of the socks that are further along on the forum. The ribbing/lace/ribbing makes a weird 'bulge' shape in the leg of the sock as the fabric tensions differently for the different stitches. The sample sock must have been SEVERLY blocked to elimate that.

Maybe a version of broken rib? I shall experiment.
