Essentially Upbraided

Another pair of finished socks! And I've fallen in love with Ann Budd's 'Better socks from the toe up' pattern in the summer 07 interweave knits. As soon as these came off the needles, I cast on two more pairs.

I apologize for the somewhat unclear pictures. My photographer's only around after 8 pm, so natural light is out of the question.

Essential superwash from knit picks in ash. Size 2 needles (again, knit picks - I'm an addict to their stuff). Pattern was, as mentioned, Ann Budd's toe-up socks from IK 07, plus some cabling that I added on my own. I love the way the braid travels upward, because of the toe up construction.
