It's a Sock!

Did I mention that I have been running?  Did I also mention that I managed to really screw up my ankle last Saturday?  Not the one that just happened, but the one that happened over a week ago.  I am still limping, and keeping it elevated whenever I am not at work.  This led to a weekend in bed, and a new sock!


It's toe up using a short row toe and short row heel.  Both are double wrapped, so there are no holes.  I can't remember where I got the no holes recipe from.  I just did this from memory.  


The rest of the sock is plain stockinette with extra long ribbing at the top.


I used this sock as a good excuse to learn a new cast off technique.  I used Elizabeth Zimmermann's stretchy bind off.  It was really easy, and I am extremely pleased with the result.

I am hard at work on the mate for this sock.  

Oh, before I forget ---- The yarn is Austermann Step in color #21.

Isn't it great to have knitting to keep you company when you're off your feet? Wishing you speedy healing.
