On the Needles

This is the newest sock project being done in Mary Maxim Gemtones brand sock yarn.
Wool & nylon.
2.25mm dpns with my newest accessory - the knitting  belt which I ordered from http://www.journeyman-leather.co.uk/ in Yorkshire, England. It works very nicely & the leather is really lovely.

With these socks I used a provisional cast on (that's new to me) and did a short row toe for the second time. For some reason I kept making the same mistake many times over.

I refused to give up & eventually I got it right. I am probably at the point with this method where I could do it now without the instructions. I am going to cast on another sock and see if I can get it right the first time 'round.
