Dear Alene,
Here's the toe-up sock in progress, hanging in DFIL's Gravenstein apple tree (yum, pie). And here it is finished with Farli for scale ;) Since it is a sample for the shop, I made it a child's small from the toe-up chart in the summer issue of Interweave Knits. I did it on two sz. 2 circs. I'm happy with how it turned out, and I like the yarn. I was not however filled with a burning desire to knit more socks. I guess they'll remain only an occasional thing for me, as we previously discussed. I think the rest of the yarn would make a lovely scarf!

Next post: spinning and my Tour. Things have been nutty here since vacation, mostly cuz of kid sleep issues (trying not to whine, many families have those worse than us). HP was a bright spot in it all.
Cheers, Cindy

The sock, apples and cat all look wonderful. I am not sure that I'm a big fan of toe-up socks. In some ways it seems slower and more clunky than the regular style.
