Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.

Here's the sock knit in Toasty Toes sock yarn, from Interlacements. I wanted to experiment with mini cables and twisted stitches and found the actual knitting of them a delight with this yarn. There are two stitch cables over 4 rows separaed by 2 purls, 1 twisted knit stitch, 2 purls. The yarn is soft and springy, it responds obediently to your needles. In a solid color these textured stitches ought to be stunning - especially a pale one. Alas, the result in the handpainted colors seems only so-so to me. At least the cuffs will be snug against my ankle. This is where I stopped yesterday. Only a few more rounds to the toe decreases and sock #1 is done.
