Cast-On ~ April Sockdown

The April Sockdown challenge on Ravelry is to knit a pattern by Jeanie Townsend. I had not heard of this designer before now but learned she has a Yahoo Sock Knitting group. After joining the group I discovered she has designed many beautiful socks. The sock I have selected is called Cascading Leaves.

In keeping with the current Project Spectrum colors I selected a lovely Shibui yarn in green. I then went to Ravelry to see all the socks knit with this yarn and discovered that it does have some issues with pooling. I'm hoping that this sock pattern will camoflauge it some. You can see the pooling already in my cast on stitches. I guess I will just have to imagine that it is sunshine shining through on my cascading leaves :-)
