I nearly managed to get them to match but after matching the picot cuffs it went wrong somewhere on the leg of the second sock

My first ever lace project but after the first sock I put them on hold as I competed in the Knitting World Cup & made Oriel another lace pair of socks. Typically with lace the WIP looked nothing like the finished object & this photo taken on Sunday shows how different they look before washing & blocking.

I love this pattern! I think I shall knit a pair - and lace blocking is such a joy!

These were my first lace project too! The second one isn't finished yet - better throw it in the skipnorth bag hadn't I. Mine are in Fleece Artist Merino in pink.
