Socks socks socks!

Some people are spending their summer knitting lace. Me? I’m spending my summer knitting socks.

There are a few firsts with this sock. It is the first one I’ve done toe up. It will also be graced with my first short row heel. And, miracle of all miracles, it is the first time I’ve used two circular needles for socks. Again, I am using Artyarns Supermerino. I love the stuff, it knits up quick and comes in beautiful colours.

I’m also working on a pair of socks using the often talked about, yet damn near impossible to find, Trekking XXL in colourway #100. Love those bright stripes. I added a picot edge because I am tired of doing ribbing. I figure I have another inch to knit on the leg before I start the heel. The jury is still out on if it will be short rowed or the standard heel flap with gusset.

    I don’t know diddly about knitting, but those colors are beautiful.

    Hey, what toe-up pattern are you using? I’d like to try my hands at toe-up next. I think toe-up socks look a bit neater.
