More evidence of my knitter's ADD: I HAD to start knitting with the Sundara Cherry Blossoms sport merino, I just had to. So I started Jeanie Townsend's Peach Petals Socks with the same tubular cast-on as for the Embossed Leaves socks. I really like that cast-on for magic loop, it makes it much easier for me to join. It was worth the pain of learning to cast on alternating knit and purl sts. Now this yarn is not only beautiful, it yummy to knit with. Really lovely. Has a kind of springiness usually seen in crepe yarns (but I believe it is plied) that makes it very nice to knit. I'm using size 4 circs and my gauge in stockinette st is about 8 sts/in; the yarn is stretchy, the cast-on is elastic, and I am a sock-optimist: I am always hopeful that socks will fit. Maybe not perfectly, but they will fit. We shall see.
