Calla Lilies and Heel Flaps

Sundara yarn, "Calla Lily" colorway - The first selection in the Sundara yarn club, and my first toe-up socks - I wanted to use every scrap of this lovely yarn. (I modified Sundara's pattern so much that the only remaining feature is the lace inset on the back of the leg.) I used Debbie Powell's "square toe cast-on" from the Socknitters site. Then when it came to the heel shaping, I used Brooke's method from Summer 2006 Knitty.com for the "Widdershins" toe-up socks. When I cast off, I used a type of "Russian bind-off" from this site.

I'm commenting on my own blog, this is all in the test period, the color really sucks. Will have to try that photo again in better light.

The socks look great - I've yet to master toe up. x
