I present to you my big surprise. TA-DA!! I finished my Lacey Socks in Worsted Weight just in time. I realized that I should have knitted up a swatch before beginning the whole project because Schaeffer's Helene yarn is comparable to Lorna's Laces' Lion & Lamb. The black yarn on the top, heel, and toe is the discontinued Berroco's Softwist Bulky. I think I know why the yarn is not being made anymore; it splits A LOT. Besides the yarn color changes, the only tweaks I did to this pattern was using twisted stockinette on the heel flap and on the bottom of the toe. Bad news on this pair, though. I need to re-knit the first sock I did because it is 1) waaaay too big, and 2) I need to put the black ribbing on the top of the sock. Otherwise, I am happy with the results from what was originally this shot from last week in the yarn shown below. =:8
