Can you believe it. I said that I would never knit a toe up sock. I had no interest, yet here I am knitting a toe up sock and I am loving it. Go figure. A whole new world has opened up for me with socks. Wendy Johnson here I come!
I am using a basic toe up sock pattern with size 2 needles and Online Supersocke 100 in the Candy color 1177. I really like how this sock is striping. My knitting instructor cast on the toe for me, but I really need to learn how to do that. I guess I will be watching You Tube videos for awhile until I get the hang of it. I am knitting the sock with a heel flap rather than a short row heel.
I also completed the April Mid-Month KAL. The pattern is Growing up cloth by Janet Nogle. I used size 7 needles with Peaches and Creme in the dalmation colorway. I wish it would have striped differently, but I did like the color. The striping makes the cloth look like it has an X doesn't it?
I am enjoying the Online sock yarn so much, I bought another skein in color 1180. Online is one of my favorite sock yarns.
I'm also in love with Sundara Sock yarn and Sanguine Gryphon Bugga. I got more Sundara Sock yarn in the colors Step by Step, Ember over Flame and Sunburst Sojurn.
I got Bugga in the colors Twice Stabbed Lady Beetle and Cuban Cockroach.
I am in heaven!
