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.
