Finished Object - First pair of toe up socks


I have just darned the ends in of this pair of socks, and there were a lot of ends :-)

I bought a set of mini yarns from Siobhans Crafts at the British Wool show in August. This colour way was based on The Lion King.

Lately I have not enjoyed knitting the second socks of my pairs so I decided to try two at a time toe up socks. I started with Judy's magic cast on. I tried this cast on about a year ago and could not get away with it so I tried this tutorial and it really helped.

I found knitting the socks two at a time meant they grew really quickly. I changed colour every 15 rows. I found this pattern by Jo Torr - Vanilla Sock with Gusset & Choice of Heel. This pattern really helped with the heel part of the socks.


I have really enjoyed making these socks apart from using the magic loop method. I always get a ladder on one side so I will be going back to using DPNs for future socks.
