Toe Up Socks


Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino, Colour #114
Needles: Addi Turbos Sz 3 24″ and 32″ Circulars
Pattern: My own

As a rule, they were a Christmas present. Yes, I know it is a month and a handful of days past Christmas. But in my own defense, I dropped a stitch in the second sock and had to rip back past the heel and back to the damn toe. And really, after doing that, who wants to knit on that project again?


I did the first sock on two circulars, the second using the magic loop method. The heel was short-rowed using PGR’s directions. And they were knit using a pattern that only exists in my mind. I bought the yarn at Churchmouse Yarns and Teas back when I took the original toe-up class at work, and after several false starts I finally got the first sock completed in October. Needless to say, Mum is totally not getting socks for Christmas next year.

    Just a quick comment from your Sock Pal to let you know I’m reading your blog and I’m going to have a great time knitting socks for you and your distinguishingly high arch. 🙂
