Little Coriolis

20071115 Coriolis learning sock

This is the second learning sock from Cat Bordhi's New Pathways for Sock Knitters.  This one is done from the toe up, with a turned heel, heel flap, rolled top.

Doing the increases in a spiral around the sock is very interesting and attractive.  I think this is going to be my first grownup sized pair of socks.  There's a little note, almost an aside, in the instructions that says to tighten the cast on stitches at the toe before commencing to knit the sock.  That's very good advice.  I didn't follow this sage advice and if you look carefully at the toe you can see that the stitches are loose. 

It's a figure 8 cast-on.  The next cast-on in the book, page 22, Judy's Magic Cast-On, looks more promising.

What a fun book!
