Z is for Zeeger & M is for Metro

I finished my Zeegers, which are a cross between a tiger and a zebra.

They are the Diagonal Lace Socks from Wendy's book, Socks from the Toe Up. I have finished two of her patterns from her book in just two weeks. I am now a die-hard toe-up fan. What has made it so enjoyable is Judy's Magic Cast On. This makes the toes so much easier. I am also using Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. YouTube videos of both of these techniques are below.

The first pair I made of Wendy's were the Riding on the Metro Socks.
