Just one

I haven't made the mate to this sock because I am trying to finish up Christmas sock presents. I have young children so I don't have as much time to knitas I would like.
This is from SKS. I used Lacy Rib from the 5 stitch patterns. I made it the toe up way she said in the book and it was hard as I have never done it that way before. I learn something new everyday though. The yarn is so yummy, Cherry Tree Hill in Old Rose. My first time knitting with it. One more thing, I made a rolled cuff because I thought it went well with the lacy pattern.

CTH is definitely yummy and it gets so soft in the wash. I like your color. I have it resting in my stash. Will be looking to see how the mate knits up.

This isn't about your sock, but about a possible error in SKS that isn't published on the website. Page 36 (gusset decrease) round 3 appears to say to decrease on every round. I don't think that's right. Look at the decrease instructions for another top down sock on page 46. There's a knit row between the decrease rows. I'm a new knitter so I'm not confident about this. What do you think?

Delicious! Nice work. I like the rolled cuff.
