1st toe up socks

This is Sandy wearing the first ever, toe-up socks I have ever knitted that I liked.  Look at them closely.  The one on the left was started with 6 cast on stitches and the one on the right with 8 cast on stitches.  Otherwise, both used size 2 needles.  Odd, really, how different the patterning on the foot looks.  Still, she can tell which is for which foot when she wears them. 🙂

The colors in this picture are pretty close to actual, and I love them.  I may have to get another skein from Gynx Yarn (her “Fairy” colorway on the strong sock base) since I had really wanted socks out of this color.  Next time, I won’t knit the foot so long so I can keep them.

Next time they will be worn by her will be in Alaska at the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer.  Cool!!
