Autumn Sunset

This is my version of Autumn Sunset. I'm not very good at with stranded work yet so I only did the pattern at the toe and cuff - knitted toe up with a heel flap. Increased the cuff to 70 stitches and was able to get the sock over my heel. US2 using unknown cream yarn purchased from Stitches West.

I've casted on a 2nd pair of Last Leaves of Summer to continue practicing stranded knitting. I may try to cast on Autumn Sunset with US3 as Sandy and Steve did but maybe just for the cuff and leg and see if I can get it over my heel. Would love to be able to do more colors changes but way too advance for me now.

Thank you Tama for continuing to challenge me and help me improve my knitting skills.

I love how you used the design as a trim! I never would have thought of that. It would make a cool edge on the hat I'm working on now. Hmmmmmmm.

They look lovely! Knitting the 'leaves' in the basic colour is an idea I'm gonna try.
