Fancy Chevron Lace Socks

I must say these socks cane out perfect. The pattern is from the knit list, easily found on the internet with a search. The yarn is "Freshisle Fibers" "Suffolk Wool", in the color of "Grapes". I used almost a whole skein for the pair. There might be enough left for a stripe somewhere. I am also showing a close up of the stitching so you can really see the beauty of this yarn.
I was looking around on knitty today and found a wonderful way to improve the look of a kitchener toe. No pointed corners any more. Here is the link to the article http://www.knittyboard.com/viewtopic.php?t=44261 . The mittens that I spoke of yesterday still need thumbs. Did not have time to work on them. I wanted to finish these.

Such beautiful work! I, of course, love the socks - nice patterning. Those "Fuzzy Feet" look so toasty, too.
