I really wanted to knit the Latvian Socks from Folk Socks, but lacked a pair of US#0 needles (that's a cocktail stick for goodness sake!) & no sock pattern known to me would fit the pattern repeat, so as I wanted to try the picot edge I have gone a little 'off piste'! Picot edge, Oblique Openwork (from Sensational Knitted Socks) & Opel Zebra left over from some fingerless gloves knitted before Christmas. The pattern is a little lost in the stripes but whatever.... I like them so far. In putting in the last link I noticed that More Sensational Knitted Socks is due out in March hmmm!!!!!
The headband I like. It avoids 'helmet hair' & can be slipped in the pocket when not required to prevent ears from freezing. The red hat will have to be bobble-less, due to using all the wool on the monster bobble. It is OK without.
