FO: Blackrose socks.

Blackrose socks from Winter 2008 Knitty. Knit up in Mountain Colors Bearfoot. I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn. Very solid and knits up nicely on 3mm needles. I substituted a short row heel because it's faster and I like to get finished.
The colorway is a bit busy for this pattern, but I can cope with it.

I've now started another pair of socks. But I think that, after I finish this pair, I'm going to focus on knitting down my lace stash for a while. I've done pretty well running down the sock yarn stash for the beginning of the year, but I seem to be accumulating the lace yarn (not all of it laceweight) a bit too quickly.

For example, I just recently swapped enough yarn for two pairs of socks in colors that weren't really doing it for me for this yarn:
Lorna's Laces Heaven
That bit of lovely is a hank of Lorna's Laces Heaven. Destined to be a shawl of some sort or another. Time to get to getting on the lace front, I think.

Speedy! And I love the colors.

Don't get me started on the lace, either....
