It's a sock!

I'm halfway done with a pair of socks!! I am making these out of Regia Norweger Ringel Color (#5160) on #2 dpns. These are going to look great with faded demin! The specs: I'm knitting them top down with a picot cuff (detail below). The heels are double wrapped short row heels.

Here is a close-up of the picot cuff. It was a huge pain in the butt getting started. I have never had trouble joining in the round, but for some reason I could NOT get started with the provisional cast-on without getting things all twisted up. I finally got it to work, took detailed notes and will blog with pictures as I start the second sock so I have it documented for the next time I want a picot edge on something.
