Toe-Up Tuesday

The colors of this sock yarn attracted me moment I saw it amongst the other cakes of wool. It was with a slight eagerness and anxiety that I waited for my turn to choose my test yarn. When it came time to knit, I searched books, magazines, and online for the right pattern. At first, I was going to use one from Knitting on the Road, but it was not a match. I finally settled on Spring Forward from the current issue of Knitty. Still, I was not just going to knit the pattern as written, for I wanted to work toe to cuff. I have enjoyed my return to socknitting. It has been a nice companion, allowing me to knit through busy times.

Cara dyed this sock yarn, and I was honored to be a test knitter for her.
