Knitting quietly away

I finished one pair of Sockotta socks. This one is color #10.

Did the garter stitch heel and toe. I kept the row and stitch counts the same as for the Sockotta stripes recently finished, but this pair's cuff seemed shorter. Had more than usual left over, so will have to rethink the idea of doing them all the same.

I took some time to attempt lace. Much frustration later, I have set it aside. Got some needles and Meg Swanson's A Gathering of Lace on order. Will try a different shawl pattern. I figured I was having trouble with the motif on the swatch, so there was no way I was going to do a shawl that begins with casting on 431 stitches. Messing up one row would kill me!
