Spring is FINALLY here! Can you believe it? I'm thrilled to see the winter of 2010 behind us!
And of course, just in time, I've finished knitting black and gray sock #1, which is 75% Superwash Wool and 25% Nylon (Poem Sock Yarn). Hopefully I will complete its companion long before I need to wear the pair!
I knit this sock also from the toe up, which has become my favorite method of sock knitting. The top of the foot is simply a K4P4 for 4 rows, then a P4K4 for another 4 rows, alternating thusly until the heel is reached. I ribbed the leg K4P4 and then added a garter stitch at the top, completing it with Elizabeth Zimmerman's cast-off.
As you can see from this last photo, the sock looks far better on than off!
Hope you had a most enjoyable first day of Spring!
