Yarn: Fleece Artist "Autumn" from my Practically Perfect Secret Pal
Pattern: Toe-up Beaded Rib from "Sensational Knitted Socks"
Comments: this was my first toe-up and my first short row toe/heel. Not certain I'm a fan of this way round. It's also the first time I've split a ball in two and seen how far I can knit - so these socks are a good 8cm/3 inches longer than I typically make my socks. I think I might like them the shorter length, but we'll see what wearing them teaches me.
Here's a picture of both socks with my feet firmly on the ground.
I lost my mojo for a while and now I'm behind my loose 'one pair per month' plan to get the 12 pairs knitted. I'd better catch up. Good think I'm so enamored with the new Bellatrix socks pattern.
