Ellen's Stocking

The first of a pair of Ellen's Stockings from Folk Knitting in Estonia is finished. I'm not sure how well this Regia Silk yarn will wear, but it surely feels nice. I enjoyed the patterning on this one and liked the stockinette for the heel flap. I do not like the heel turn on this one because it doesn't seem to fit my wide heel as well as others. The spiral shape toe was a first for me as well and it was quick and easy and fits well.

Now I'm torn between beginning its mate and trying something out of my new book:Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn A. Clark.

What a pretty sock! It's very interesting how the back and front of the sock are different.
