Caprican Socks

CapricasOliver
This is the start of the Marlowe Crawford "Oliver". It is a great looking sock and is one of my projects that I am working on. I will be making this sock completely on dpns. I may have to get myself some nifty Signature Dpns for my Birthday, at least one set lol. Anyway this sock is cast on with a double tail cast on, which gives you a very stretchy strong edge. Hope to give you a picture of the heel flap and the turning of the heel later on, thanks for stopping by!

I love the color!!! Is the double tail cast on the same as a long tail cast on? I've also seen seen it called a double cast on.

This yarn with it's flecky nature will show up perfectly in Marlowe's sock design...here's a picture of the finished sock in case folks are interested (ore at least the interesting design structure of the foot section of the sock):

I'm not familiar with the double tail cast on. [That I remember, anyhow.] But the sock looks very nice and I have heard great things about the "Oliver" design. Do keep us posted. EDIT: I do know this cast on. It's the one I use often...just never heard it called Double Tail before. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
