Petite Pansie Picots

Say that 10 times fast!

With all my time in February knitting a hat, scarf, and a shawl, I knew I wouldn't have time to finish my current sock in progress for SAM 9 . So I decided to knit my usual stand-by socks. Magic 28 Socks

This time, I wanted to try a picot cuff.

I wasn't sure it would work due to the number of stitches (28) but hey, what the heck, it's a small sock if I have to frog it. Aren't they cute???

This yarn may be familiar, it's the leftovers from this pair. As you can see by the toe pic, I didn't have enough leftover.

Of course, I didn't find that out until I had already finished toe 1. I also realized, I have no purple sock yarn. So in true last minute style, while watching the closing ceremonies of the Olympics, I frogged back sock 1 and knit the toes in some leftover Cascade 220 superwash from these socks.

No plans for these, but I'll save them for some future little baby girl.

Cute! I love the picot edge.

Sadly, not only did I not finish my February socks, but I think I'm going to rip them out - the pooling is totally different on the second sock than the first. I'm thinking this pretty yarn needs to be plain stockinette.

I really love that orange toes! Nicer that purple ones would be!
