September sock

I bought this lovely sock yarn from Gemini Knits. It is called Bubblegum and is really, really bright pink in places. The pattern is the Slouch socks by Sue Morgan of Get Knitted. Sue kindly let me adapt it for wider ankles by adding 16 sts to the frill at the top and then decreasing to 60 sts after the 20 rows of lace and 6 rows of garter stitch. This has made it stretchy but not baggy. I used 39g of yarn for this and it fits a size 6 foot. I have already cast on for the next one : )
