I'm so exited! I'm going to get my hair braided tomorrow! All-black waist length braids with blue braids at the temples. It's going to be a looooong day, but the results are going to be so worth it. I can't wait!

The first Alhambra Sock is finished! I hope I can still call it an Alhambra Sock with all the mods I made...

Alhambra Sock

I loved the stitch pattern, it is easy to memorize, but you also need to pay attention. Otherwise the lace may not zig and zag, it might only zig or only zag. (Don't ask me how much I had to rip!) As always, I couldn't leave things alone and substituted heels and toes. I didn't continue with the lace down the foot because I was afraid it might be too loose.

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the pattern, it is excellent. Being an Estonian I just might be genetically unable to follow the whole thing. This beauty of a pattern can be found here, on Ryan's (the author) blog.

I'm off to cast on for the second one. Have a nice weekend!

P.S. Please forgive all the exclamation marks, I couldn't contain myself.
