Yarn: Bare Essential (75% superwash merino, 25% nylon)
Dye: Jacquard Acid Dyes Burnt Orange, Burgundy, Chestnut
Needles: 40" nickel plated fixed circular, size 0
Pattern: my own - toe-up, standard heel flap, slip stitch heel and back ankle, knit until the yarn is gone. I'm working on writing the pattern up for our sock catalog in June/July. Anyone want to test knit for me?

Whew, they're done! It was so nice to be able to show the finished product to my class. I started the class teaching both the two-socks-on-two-circs method and the magic loop method so the students could choose which way they wanted to knit. They are all very new knitters; most have only done a scarf or two. After a couple weeks of frustration, all the two-circ ladies switched to magic loop, and now we are really making progress. Magic loop seems to be easier to understand conceptually, and there are only two needle tips to keep track of instead of four.

Thanks for your interest in testing my sock pattern! But, we have about 8 people testing it right now, so I think it's covered. It'll be in our catalog and on the web this summer.

Are you still in need of test knitters for the pattern?
