.... I couldn't if I tried!
Sorry, I couldn't help myself :-)
I have a finished pair of socks to show you! These are Breaking Hearts by Cristi Brockway who my Ravelry friends probably know as Turtlegirl76. She is one of the moderators of the Socks That Rawk! Group. This group does quarterly knit-a-longs and Cristi's pattern was chosen for Quarter 2. I also follow Cristi's Blog and have occasional email chats with her. When her pattern was chosen, I emailed her to congratulate her and asked if there were any colors of STR that she would love to see her pattern knit up in. Cristi emailed me back that she had looked at my STR stash that I have on Ravelry and she thought that Watermelon Tourmaline would be great. Awesome! No need for me to anguish over which color to choose AND I had been looking for just the right pattern to showcase that colorway.
So let's start at the beginning. This sock starts with a twisted garter cuff which was a new technique for me. It took a couple tries to be sure I was doing it right, but I got it.
