Caspian Sea Sock

Priscilla Gibson-Roberts' Caspian Sea Sock from Knitting Daily still on the blocking square.
I used Dale of Norway Tuir as recommended in the pattern, but changed the background color from pink to red--because I think it looks more elegant.
I have tiny, tiny feet. The pattern suggested using US1 needles for a slightly smaller size. I actually ended up using size 3 and they fit nicely.
Interesting pattern. My fair isle needs some practice, but it was great fun. I'm going to finish the second sock before doing the afterthought heels.
I also used a very loose cast off and think I may go back and do a traditional cast off--this one looks a bit ruffly.

Great sock. I'd love to knit these some time.
