I just have to say that this is my foot, and I’m making it arch like that. Fun photoshoot.

It’s a forthcoming pattern from Turtlegirl – the Calvin sock. I test knit the smallest size for her. I’ve got to say, I really love the slip stitch pattern; the variegated yarn just sings instead of falling flat.

The yarn is Cider Moon Icicle in Avocado.  I’m very sad it’s no longer available!

Can you tell I was having fun with Photoshop filters?

See how pretty the slip stitch is? It’s so very easy, too. The garter border makes it easy to keep track of your rows, and I love that it starts right at the tip of the toe.

The sock uses the riverbed sockitecture. Very interesting; it makes a nice deep heel pocket and for a girl like me with a narrow foot but a high instep, it works very well.

    Very nice.

    I too think Cider Moon’s disappearance left a gaping hole in the yarnscape.

    I think she has a winner of a pattern! I love your sock in that colorway. I have the same one in dk weight. I need to try that riverbed structure!
