I just discovered this cast on the a few days ago. It's used for toe up socks. As I am not a sock knitter (yet) it's totally new to me. It looks like a great provisional cast on. Has anyone used it for anything other than socks?
Here's the latest project I've been working on. I decided to use Knit Picks Chroma yarn instead of Noro. The colors I chose for this scarf are Bittersweet Heather and Pool Party. Nothing spectacular but I like it.

I finished knitting my cowl scarf tonight and blocked it. The scarf is drying now.
You might recall I posted a week or so ago about wanting to knit a cowl for myself. I decided on the "Purl Ridge Scarf" cowl pattern by Stephen West. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/purl-ridge-scarf

Not sure where I am going yet with this sweater. The wool is a rustic tweed from the Queensland Collection.63% wool, 27% alpaca & 10% donegal. I'll keep the topic going and see what turns it takes.
