Tomorrow begins both Summer and Summer of Socks 2007. I plan to start with these three yarns of three different weights.
I have the Supersock DK from Cherry Tree Hill in Spring Frost, Claudia Handpainted in Urban Fever, and red from Lang Jawoll.
I've knit three pair of socks so far, each using a different method: top down, toe up, and two at once toe up on magic loop.
I plan to try various heels and toes this summer, mostly on simpler socks. I usually use patterns more as a guide and plan to do the same for my socks. I'll start with a basic toe up using a figure eight cast on. The heel I'll try first is a short row using YOs.
I lean toward knitting the CTH DK first for a fairly speedy start.
