Tour de Sock: Stage One

The first stage of TdS is over and I just barely finished in time!

Pattern: Saint Michel Socks
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll in Atmosphere Multi
Needle: 2.5mm

There are two things, should I make this pattern again, that I will change. First, I’d do it in a solid. I’ve been wanting to use this yarn and it isn’t *so* bad with the pattern, but it definitely shows up better in a solid. Second, I’d do a stockinette toe. I’d never done a lace toe before (but didn’t like idea) however we had to follow the pattern exactly. So I did. Some others who are also doing Tour de Sock put in a lifeline before starting the toe. When they had turned in their socks, they ripped back and reknit them as stockinette toes. That would have been the smart thing to do…
