Whee! These took me a while!  The first sock went fabulously; the problem with the second one was not so much SSS as that I just kept screwing up - not sure why. But finally, I finished, and I like 'em. Cheesy

I couldn't find black velvet ribbon of a good width, so I just used five strands of the yarn held together.

This is KnitPicks Gloss, by the way.  Pretty nice yarn!  Went into a third ball but didn't even nearly finish it.  I doubled the yarn for the heels.

Pardon my messy floor!



The pattern called for size 3 needles, but I have skinny calves and was nervous about the socks being too big, so I used size 2 and that seems to have worked out perfectly.

Wow!!! Awesome!!

Wish I had the patience to start another lace project like this, but my previous one killed my motivation.

Again, great job. And nice shoes that you have there.

Thank you, folks!  Grin

To those who are intimidated by lace... let me just say that this is as straightforward as lace gets.  If I was able to do it, anyone can.  There are only two lace rows, and they're pretty simple.  I'm horrible at any pattern that requires careful attention. (I suffered through many, many hours trying to do the "Butterfly" dress that has a thread in "Knitalongs"...and I eventually gave up.)

So yeah, go for it! It's a great pattern.

I love the socks, but really LOVE those shoes.  They go perfectly together.  WTG!

*grin* - thanks! It's funny, I've gotten a couple of compliments from various people about the shoes, but I got them randomly as a hand-me-down, and they don't quite fit right! I've only worn them once or twice before now, but I do think they go pretty well with the socks, so I'll probably wear 'em more often now.
