One In Sun Done

The whole sock, and as seen from the front of the leg.

One Baltic Sock is done in Lorna's Laces Sunshine, and I'm having a giant case of second sock syndrome. It looks beautiful just hanging around, but looks like any other sock on the foot. I think my problem is that I just received two skeins of Knit Picks Merino sock yarn in Hollyberry, and I want to knit Christmas socks for me, me, me. But I'll be good! I lovingly put it away and wound the Sunshine to start the second Baltic Sock. All those little swirls and swishes are a lot easier now that I read the lace knitter's blog about making an Excel chart of the pattern and making as many copies as there are pattern repeats. I wish I could remember who came up with that because she is a genius!!! I highlight the row I just finished and throw away the page as I finish each repeat. It goes much faster. Okay, I talked myself into it--I'm ready to start the second sock.

I bet I know who came up with the idea of putting the repeats into an excel chart. If you are nice, I might even tell you (grinning). Love the sock by the way but don't think I'll use my sunshine for the sock. Think I might make the tivoli top out of it instead.
