Another Sock

Another from my favorite sock pattern - Jo Sharp's Picot Edge Socks, from the first issue of Knit.

This is knitted in Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette, Musk color. The pattern is clearly & succinctly written. I think it would be easy to memorize & am planning to try some variations. So far though, I have enjoyed the classic purity and rapid knitting on 3.0mm needles. The pattern calls for 3.25mm but I needed to adjust my tension.

This detail shows the elegant finishing of the picot edge. After the setup rows & picot detail, you knit 6 more rows and then pick up the cast on stitches while knitting the 7th row. No sewing.

Very nice. These look beautifully simple, the kind of thing that highlights a lush yarn.
