I also cast on for Widdershins using some INterlacements Tiny Toes that I bought at Stitches West. I'm not sure I have enough of this for a pair of socks for Tim, so the toe up pattern is a good choice for this one. So far (and I've only done the toe) so good on those.
I'm also trucking along on my cotton ease cardigan (it is now a big blue blog or I'd show it to you). I've also discovered an entire Yahoo group dedicated to cotton ease. Leave me a comment if you want more info on this!
