Finally, some pics to post!
A finished pair of socks - anklet, Cascade Fixation Bulky, for my sister-in-law (generic top-down construction, 36 stitches):
One sock - Jolly Jumbuck's Aphrodite, Athabasca colourway (my first-ever toe-up, improvised pattern over 48 stitches -couldn't work out the heel, so I just did the ole heel flap/turning like I do when I do top-down, and it's fine!!!):
(modelled begrudgingly by Lucy Bell)
And I've just started another pair, the Summer Socks, in fire-engine red (not the actual name of the colour, can't find the band), Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport!!
I'm on a roll!
