Oakville beginnings

First... thanks for all who entered the Blogaversary contest. I'm sorry, you won't get Rupert in the surprise box either!

Now...With the heavy boot socks done and dusted, it was high time to get back to the On the GO designs. On the weekend I caked up a nice skein of red/brown/orange. It was dyed by Miss Paisley, and she called it Mad Hatter.
This stop is Oakville, and I'm using a modified Fir Cone stitch pattern for a nice, simple lacy sock.

I'd like to say this one will fly off the needles... but I don't want to jinx myself!

How sweet to see the lace but the smoky red/brown just sets it off!
Nice to see your designer wheels back in action!
