plans for new sock

I decided to try another toe-up sock since I decided that I shouldn't give up on it after one bad experience and because I had a ball of yarn that was barely enough for 2 socks -- if they were short enough. But this time I decided to do everything differently using a completely different toe and heel than the short row ones from before.

I'm going to use the closed toe from Bradyphrenia and Debbi Young and the heel from Denise Powell and Dianne Martin. To make it a little more interesting for the self-striping yarn, I'm going to use the Wyvern pattern from Marnie MacLean
