A new project: Zum Dirndl test knit

So I started a new project this past weekend. I am helping test-knit a pattern for Yarnissima, one of my favorite sock designers. The sock is "knee high, Bavarian-style, toe-up, with lots & lots of twisted stitches, combined with an easy, pretty lace". It is designed to be knit with Wollmeise yarn by Claudia, to cheer her up as she goes in for knee surgery. I, of course, will be knitting it with Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 (colorway: olive), since I have that on hand...

So far, so good. This was my first short-row toe--normally I would use Judy's Magic loop cast on for toe-up, but I wanted to follow the pattern as written since we are testing it. I liked the short row toe and will be interested to see how it feels on.
