New skills. New Socks.

Joey's socks are finished and gifted (which was accompanied by an unexpected release from emotional turmoil. Hurray for knitting!!!) So I'm free to start on some new socks. (Am I a slutty sock knitter?)

I've always been terrified of toe-up cast-ons but after the yarn fiasco with Joey's socks, it felt like the right time. Nikol suggested the toe-up cast-on from a free Knit Picks pattern. The cast-on was simple and intuitive, and I was knitting in no time! Learning new skills is the greatest!

I'm using Socks That Rock lightweight in one of the Raven Clan colors: Ravenscroft. This is my first time knitting with any Socks That Rock yarn and I'm enjoying it so far.
