Another 30th Birthday sock.

In the land of sock knitting this week we have the start of the first of the Slip Up Socks for Tony's sisters 30th birthday in mid-November. It is in Lorna's Laces Purple Club, which Tony chose from my ridiculously large sock yarn stash. The ribbing makes it really stretchy, but quite hard to photograph. I'm not that convinced I like it, I think it is because you see so much of the purl side. I've just started on the heel, which I like a lot more, being stocking stitch. I'm sure it will be fine.
