Earlier this spring I embarked on my first toe up socks (the Anastasia Socks) they were okay....but I honestly don't enjoy the process of short row toes and heels....they fit my foot okay, but I don't look forward to making them.
But I haven't given up on toe up! (haha) maybe because the idea of not running out of yarn is so very appealing. So I ordered Wendy's new book...Socks from the toe up....and it is amazing!
She talks about so many different ways to do toes and heels....these are toes with Judy's magic cast on and a gusset heel...yep a gusset! It was easy and enjoyable! I'm totally rethinking toe up!
I'm loving watching my handspun become socks! (this is the Targhee!) and it has such a long leg because I still had yarn :) oh and as someone mentioned on the last post....yep these are on dpn! Even though I wrote magic loop tutorials (and still get lots of blog hits for them) dpn are my comfort knitting. Some projects seem better for magic loop and then I will go for it, but in general I reach for my lovely harmony dpn!
