I've got the toes and a few repeats of the lace pattern finished for the Falling Leaves socks. They're looking good so far. I'm enjoying this lace because it's not too long of a repeat and it's not hard to see where I left off in the sequence. I ended up doing the toe with a Magic-8 cast-on and increasing up to where the lace starts instead of the short-rows that are done in the pattern. I tried them and the sides weren't looking very nice and I think the pattern was missing the last row of increases because I ended up with one stitch left on each side. So I decided in the interest of progress to do the toe I like and go on from there.
I love my baby's toes!
