FO: Cherry Tree Hill Dusk Socks

These socks are super squishy and I'm totally diggin-em! I also noticed I can't get out of the habit of a Picot bind-off edging with my socks lately. It is kinda fiddly but it always gives me really a stretchy cuff.

Pattern: Toe-up on Two Circular needles
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill - Dusk colorway
Needles: US 1
Start Date: August 10, 2007
End Date: August 23, 2007
Comments: These knit up pretty quickly and my normal speed with sock is on average 2 weeks, but I had several project going on so I bet I could have pulled these out in a week.

This was my first take on photographing the socks model...

I like my feet better;) I've also cast-on a twin version for Miss Mac as she was telling me with a very firm These Are Mine...hahahaha...these suckers are knee-highs on her!!! I should have enough for little anklets and she was pleased to hear that she was getting a pair. Thus letting loose the death grip she had on them;)

Very pretty! I love the picot edge!

I'm just learning to knit socks. I've finished my first PAIR of top down last week and then I cast on for a toe up, just to see the difference. I'm only at the ankle increases. Why do you prefer toe up to top down? I'm just learning and can use all the tips I can get.
Thanks for a great blog. I love reading yours and you have beautiful children!!!
