I have had this pair of socks on the needles since my trip to Yarn Harlot's book signing. Done two at once on one circular needle, they were my Travelling Project......something boring but easy to do while travelling. At 10 stitches to the inch and stockinette in the foot and k1, p1 ribbing in the ankle, they got really boring and the project dragged on and on. I'm so glad they are off the needles and onto my chilly feet.
These were done with a "Figure 8" cast on at the toe, a Peasant Heel, and a picot bind off. I did the picot bind off not for they way they look but for the greater elasticity it adds to the bind off. The yarn was from Elann's Sock It To Me Collection in a coloring I no longer see offered.
