These were made for Mommy Dearest for Mother's Day. I just got around to uploading the photos from my camera. The pattern is by Cookie A. and called Baudelaire. I knitted them two at a time with two US2 circular Addi Turbo Lace needles. The red yarn is Knit Picks Stroll, kettle dyed in wine. The toe and cuff is knit with some left over Crystal Palace, Mini Mochi in Autumn Rainbow. I spit spliced the yarn to get the color variants I wanted to achieve.
My only modifications were starting the toe with 24 stitches instead of 16 and increasing every row for the toe on the first four rounds before going to every other row until reaching the desired stitch count. I also repeated the lace pattern one additional time before going into the ribbing. I used Judy Becker's Magic cast on and casted off using JSSBO which I really liked!
I really liked the pattern and it was fun to knit. It's a free download from Knitty.com. You can read more details about the specifics and find out why I think my Mother is the reincarnation of Joan Crawford on my blog The Knitting Mill The photos were taken before they were blocked, so that's why they appear a bit loose. They fit really well afterward.
