Made with Elann's peruvian collection baby cashmere, these are possibly the most impractical and fussy socks ever, and I'm very happy with how they turned out (my second pair ever!)

Beautiful, beautiful socks!    The stitches are so teeny and perfect.  That's a gorgeous shade of pink.  What pattern did you use?  Please let us know your grammy's reaction and how the baby cashmere wears.  Congratulations!

It takes a lot for a sock to be impractical, and I don't think that baby cashmere yarn fits that bill. All it means is that if I were to wear those socks, I would not wear them with shoes - but they'd be perfect lounge-around-the-house-with-toasty-toes socks. Smiley (Oh, yes, and they look great, too!)

They're very pretty! I really like the lace pattern and the solid pink.
