October was not a very productive months in many ways- while in the social department lots happend not much was achieved knitting. My knitting mojo was really down but i finally managed to finish these
Yarn: Nurturing Fibres Sock Wool
These are my first toe-up socks. When I was nearly done I decided to make knee-highs. Made the following adjustments to the leg:
- 9 repetitions: small size pattern, then pick up stitches
- 5 rep.: medium size, pick up stitches
- 5 rep.: large size
I am pleased with the result and the fit, and looking forward to wearing them ( its too hot here at the moment)
A note on toe-ups. I never really understood the fuss about toe-up or cuff-down socks, and I still don't!. Found fitting the foot lengths tricky with toe-up. But making knee-highs is much easier toe-up. So both have its pro's and con's. What's your opinion on this?
PS: this isn't all in the knitting department- there is more, will tell you about it in a few days!
