new challenges!

Last night I started a new sock. (lol)

I have this beautiful new sock yarn (colorway: Roses, by Pat Fly), after looking through all of my sock books I couldn't find a "perfect"pattern"...

...then yesterday morning I was at the library returning some very overdue books, and of course had to look at their knitting books! I checked out Vogue Knitting's Stitchionary Vol 1, knit and purl!

So, last night after spending some time looking through the patterns, I decided to try to design my own sock! I am using one of the lace patterns, and had to do a little bit of tweaking of the pattern, eliminating 2 stitches, but it is working so far! (15 rows finished!)

No pictures yet, but I will share soon.
One question: the scalloped lace edge at the top of the sock is wanting to curl somewhat. Does anyone have a suggestion for me to try and avoid it?

Since there are no sock pics, I decided to leave you with a picture of the beach (taken last month)

Hm... that thing with the lace edges happens to me all the time as well - I'm sorry I'm of no help here, but I will keep checking back to see if you got some helpful anwers, I guess I'd need them too ;)
I'm very curious to see your socks, it's so great that you're doing your own design! I know it's going to be something very pretty and sure hope to see pics of it soon! ;)

Can't wait to see your socks! I'll I've done so far are basic socks, so perhaps I'll try your pattern next. Can't wait to see the finished pics!
