Berry Cobbler, Anyone?

Chamelion Colorworks yarn - Footsies berry cobbler

Doesn't this hank of yarn look good enough to eat? It is a hank of Footsie yarn from Chamelion Colorworks that I bought at their booth at the New Mexico Fiber Arts Fiesta last May. The color name is Berry Cobbler and it looks yummy.

With help from a friend, the hank turned into 2 balls on April 15 and those 2 balls are becoming a pair of socks. I'm starting the gusset increases.

The pattern is Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder. It is also available a free Ravelry download. Yes, Hermione's Everyday Socks is a cuff down patten and I'm knitting toe-up. That's a wonderful thing about the stitch pattern – it looks the same knitted toe-up as it does cuff down. I'm also working at a tighter gauge with more stitches, but the end result will look the same.
