Guys, it’s been a very long time.  I cast on for the Pomatomus socks on the day of Strawberry Fair – that’s early June.

I finally – finally! – have a pair.

I usually use socks as travel knitting – easy, portable, possible to make progress in five minutes here and there.  These were not a good choice for that; the lace pattern is not simple to read, and requires concentration.  I also decided to make life hard for myself by:
working the pattern upwards from a provisional cast on round the ball of the foot
adding a sandal toe worked downwards from the cast on
adding a picot cuff worked ‘toe up’ – something I think I invented myself (or unvented, anyway)

In future, complex socks will be ‘main’ projects.  Travel projects will be *simpler*.
