First Toe Up Socks done

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!!

    Congratulations! They are beautiful! Yes, buy another skein and get to work on a pair for you…just in time for Fall.

    I have never finished a “pair” of socks. I tend to get bored too soon…have to figure out how to do 2 at a time! 🙂 These are SO PRETTY! I LOVE them. What pattern did you use?

    They look great! I tend to do 2 socks at once on two different pairs of dpn’s, (I think they call that tandem knitting) that way I knit a little on one sock and a little on the other sock. It is the only way I can make them match!
