I do have some knitting to show, as well as some news. I have ended up turning the socks into bracers/long fingerless gloves. Since the only thing I'm now using from the pattern is the number of stitches to cast on, the purl edge, and a stitch pattern, I've decided that isn't enough for the socks to count as my project from Lace Style. But they are pretty and I'm happy with how they're turning out.
I also started a scarf from the 5th issue of Knitting Traditions. Myrtle Leaf Scarf is a lovely pattern, and I appear to be the first person knitting it (according to Ravelry anyway). It's much bigger than this now, and really is a nice lace. There is a mistake with the stitch pattern, the 11th row should be k4, * k2tog, k1, yo, k5, yo, k1, k2tog tbl*. They left off the tbl bit. And if you really want to be picky, you could also use the proper leaning decreases on the purl rows too, but I decided not to bother and it still works quite well. It's charted below, if you prefer charts.
I also figured out what my sweater project for Knit a Sweater in November's going to be, but I haven't started it yet. Since it's knitted in laceweight on size 3s (I may end up larger, but I haven't done gauge swatches yet to see), it'd be incredibly unlikely that I'd finish by the end of November anyway, and my dog destroyed my size 4s, so I need to wait for KP to send me a new set.
