With a Twist

Pattern: With a Twist, a free pattern from
Yarn: A Touch of Vermont from
Needles: Size 1 1/2. The pattern is written to be done on 2 circs or magic loop, but I'm a DP dye hard!
Cast On: Nancy Bush. I found it in her sock book, Knitting on the Road, Sock Patterns for the Sock Knitter. She's also on the internet demonstrating the cast on where she calls it an Estonian Cast On. I like it as not only is it decorative, but very elastic.
I did change the pattern to use the heel Gerdene Strong developed and which I use all the time.
