Picked Fresh from the Garden


Isn't the color breath-taking! This is a crossed cherry tomato in my daughter's garden-when we saw the color-all swirls of yellow and orange-we knew we had a picture that had to be taken. The wool I handspun is a hand-dyed superwash from an EBay store, Jenya Loves Fibers, and it spun like a dream. The sock is a free pattern posted on Turtlegirl's blog called the Red Dwarf Socks. This was my first time knitting toe-up socks and it was a new challenge. Think about all the lace patterns you have tried cuff to toe and now imagine the pattern going the other way.........what creative possiblilities!
