I was away from home for five days and took the hand-dyed yarn with me to knit a new pair of socks for myself while the weather still is cool.

My foot size is European 36-37 and I casted on 73 stitches with this yarn. The pattern is multiples of 6 plus 1 ... If you like the lacy edging, here are the instructions:

Row 1 : K1 *yo, k2tog tbl, k1, k2tog, yo, k1* (Repeat *.*)
Row 2 : Purl
Row 3 : K1 *yo, k1, sl 1 k2tog psso, k1, yo, k1* (Repeat *.*)
Row 4 : Purl
Row 5 : K1 *k2tog, yo, k1, yo, k2tog tbl, k1* (Repeat *.*)
Row 6 : Purl
Row 7 : K2tog *[k1, yo] twice, k1, sl 1 k2tog psso (Repeat *.* to last 5 stitches) [k1, yo] twice, k1, k2tog tbl
Row 8 : Purl

Continue knitting by repeating these eight rows until desired length :)
