DIY Lace Top Socks

DIY lace top socks
I've been on the hunt for lace top socks for a few weeks now and couldn't find any I was 100% happy with, and then Boz was like "Why don't you make your own?" 
BRILLIANT! 

so here's how I went about it
socks and lace of your choosing
(I bought a bunch of socks in different pastel colors that I'll be adding lace to also)
needle, thread, & pins
I pulled my socks up as high as I could to the largest part of my leg, then wrapped the lace around pinning it in place  so the seam would be on the back of the sock..
I carefully stitched the lace in place with the socks on so I knew they would fit when I wear them. If you use stretchy lace and some kind of elastic thread you could probably take the socks off with sewing the lace on... Hell, there's probably an easier way to do this without that stuff, I don't know. This seemed like the best way for me to tackle my stitches at the time, and it worked, so whatever. :)
after I stitched the lace all the way around I pinned my ends together so the turned in towards my socks and stitched them together.
CUTENESS!
