Some more socks

I've started on another pair of socks (to try and make a dent in that ever-growing stash of sock yarn). With summer coming up I decided on the Lacy Summer Socks from Knitting Lingerie Style.


I love this pattern; that the sock is working up so quickly and I'm learning a new approach to sock knitting (yes, another attempt at toe up).

I've never done a toe like this - where you have a provisional cast on, knit one side of the toe, then knit the other before picking up all the stitches to start working in the round.

Ooh and the yarn -- Socks that Rock in Little Bunny Foo Foo colourway (maybe they'll be my Easter socks?)

I just bought that book :) Lovely socks, and they are knitting up quickly. I have never tried toe up socks either, it's something I'd like to try at some point this year.

So pretty. I love how the sock is striping on the bottom and mixed up on the top.

Ewwwwwww, you are right, they are gorgeous!! I am so glad you are using the sock yarn that I gave you!! I am impressed........you received it New Years Eve and may have them finished by (an early) Easter! :)

Have a great time celebrating your FIL'S 80th B-Day!!!

Pretty socks! I've never tried toe-up so this may be the push I need.
