Sock de la Mer

Sock de la Mer

This yarn started out trying to be Blue Stocking pattern, which I still think is cool as all get out, but which does not get along well with me. The stitch pattern was NOT my friend. So... for the longest time I had a lovely toe, and kept it, while searching for this yarn's perfect toe up pattern....
I found this yarn's perfect pattern in Anne Hanson's Sock de Mer (which I'm test knitting for her). It's not toe up. Oh well. I suppose it could have been, but when test knitting, you follow the pattern... exactly.
I did sneak in my favorite arch darts -- and adapted the toe. I still think it's weird that one sock came out looking green, and the other looking blue, when they're from the same ball....
