I was so excited, I couldn’t help but cast on for a pair!
I’m knitting Darjeeling, a sock design by Cat Bordhi. I’m not the biggest fan of toe-up socks, but the arch expansion that’s in this pattern really intrigued me.
Besides, it also has a pretty interesting toe:
I’m using a skein of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn that I had in my stash:
(And it was even stored in my Ravelry Stash! If you want to know how to organize your stash on Ravelry, check out this blog post!)
This yarn is a 2-ply machine-washable merino. The sample in the pattern was knit with a S-on-S cabled yarn, which makes the purl stitches really pop on the sock… mine aren’t popping as much, but that’s okay. I’m using stash yarn, and that’s what counts, right?
I’m going to get in some knitting time on these guys, this week… because I’m headed down to NYC with my buddy Ellen (which involves a 1.5-2 hour train trip, each way). I don’t think they’ll be done by Friday… but I’ll have something else to show you, then!
