I have one of the Sense and Sensibility Socks done. I love it. I blocked the lace on the cuff... yesterday, which made a big difference. Lace just looks so darned much better when it's all blocked. As typical, there will be a tiny bit of pooling on the gusset. I sort of think that all hand paints (or virtually all) will do this. When i do spaghetti dyeing, there is NO pooling. NONE. But, spaghetti dyeing takes hugely more time, and i can't do colors like this with it, since the yellow would get muddied up :-(
anyway... pictures!


I'm absolutely loving the cuff and heel. I really like the top pattern as well. I put the sock on for pictures... and it was so hard to take it off. It felt so comfy. i just wanted to keep wearing it. But, unfortunately, the other sock is only in the lacey-cuff stage. I have 4 repeats of the 7 done.
