lilac kal

the knitpicks gloss in burgundy, which i received in a swap (hi, annie...waving arms wildly in the air) last year ,told me that it wanted to be a pair of "lilac" socks. i think they will be very elegant! the gloss is very soft. i like it!

modifications: hemmed picot cuff instead of ribbing
2.25mm needles
64 sts cuff/68 sts in leg

we are doing a "lilac" kal over at townsendsocksknitalong. jeanie designed this gorgeous sock and has offered it to the group! come on over and join us!

I really like the picot cuff! I may have to borrow that idea for my Lilacs, if you don't mind that is?!

I think the picot cuff goes very well with the lilac pattern! Great idea!!!

I can't wait to get my pattern so I can do mine too. I never thought that the gloss would be so nice, so didn't order any. However, I have plenty of stash in pretty colors so hope to be able to share my pics too, someday.
