I used the Uptown Boot Sock pattern by Jennifer Appleby from the Favorite Socks book. Yarn is Gems Pearl Merino in Carribean Blue. I used 2 circular needles to knit both socks at once and did the cables with no cable needle following Grumperina's excellent tutorial. I changed the heel to a short row heel and used Lucy Neatby's toe chimney technique to graft my first toes ever! I usually knit socks from the toe up to avoid grafting but this technique made it so easy that I wouldn't hesitate to graft again. This technique was amazingly simple and nothing to memorize...my favorite kind of technique since I suck at memorizing anything!
Now to find a good postcard and get them ready to send out on Tuesday!
