fresh socks

Not much to see yet, but it's the start of a Tart Lime Sock in Trail Sock yarn by Fleece Artist. After knitting so many socks by designer Cookie A., I thought I'd better branch out a bit and try some offerings from different designers. And this pattern from Mimknits has been in my queue for months! Although, had I known how much cabling was involved, and how many different charts, I may have reconsidered. I've started and ripped out twice already - first, when I lost track of where I was in Chart 2, and the second time, when I dropped a stitch towards the end of Chart 2. It's frustrating, but worth taking the time to do it right. Thank goodness I'm not on a deadline!
