I have a FO to show! It's the Blackrose socks from Knitty.com.
I'm calling them my Gothic Blackrose...the yarn in Dream in Color Smooshy in the "Gothic Rose" colorway.
Smooshy is great- it is dyed so the colors don't pool and most of the colorways are subtle enough to use for lace patterns. Like the title implies, this is a thick, sproingy 100% superwash merino. It makes for a nice cushy pair of socks.
I cast them on top down, two at a time on two circs for Socktober Fest, where knitters went and invaded the local Teutonic establishment for the evening:
It's pretty amazing I was able to cast on and knit on the first try. There's a lot of empty glasses on that table!
The lace pattern is easy and goes quickly- it's an 8 row repeat with a plain knit row every other row. I like how the lace is placed on the outside of the foot.
It's really hard to take pictures of your own feet.
