Had to frog the sock. Had gotten 2 pattern repeats done, then decided that it really needed to be 1 snowflake less (6 stitches). *sigh* So, the new notes are: CO 54, 1x1 for 2", inc 1 stitch, start pattern. It looks *much* better, fits a bit more snug (which is good, since lace needs to be able to stretch), and I'm happier. Back to the sock!
