FO - Lori's Vintage Socks

This week there's been a little blocking:

Add a card:

And you have a nice graduation gift. I just need to snag a gift bag for it.

Pattern: Vintage Lace Socks (aka "Fancy Silk sock for a child of 5 or 6 Years")from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush

Yarn: Hand-dyed superwash fingering weight by Jennifer of van Calcar. She is the customer dyer for Tsarina of Tsocks.

Needles: US2

Comments: Did a crochet cast on, which is just a little tight for this. Tweaked the heel placement to center it a bit better and shortened the legs by half to make a lacy summer anklet.

Love the subtle dyeing, it doesn't fight with the lace, but adds depth. I also love the hand of the yarn - it was great to work with.
