Totally Toe-Ups


WIP: Toe-ups in Republic of Wool Twist Fingering in Razzle Dazzle

I’m one of those knitters who always has a sock in progress somewhere about my person. It’s a very portable project, and you can never have too many socks. Some go for hats, or scarves; when a skein of gorgeous hand dye catches my eye and I’m craving a project that doesn’t require much forethought, toe-up socks are my default. Cuff-down has it’s good points, too, but for a fearless knit and a perfect fit, you can’t beat a sock that can be easily tried on as you go, from tip to ankle to knee, should you get carried away. Another great feature of toe-up socks: you can stop whenever you want. Limited amount of special yarn? Itching to start something quick? Anklets are your new best friend.

Now you can learn the joy of toe-up socks, done my favorite way, from a brilliant knitter whose socks I always admire! Toe Up Socks with a Gusset Heel on 2 Circular Needles, Wednesday May 18, 25 & June 1, from 6:00-8:00pm, with Emily Devlin. Emily shares her amazing formula for making socks for any feet, and Judy’s Magic Cast On and short row shaping will be demystified. You’ll be taking socks with you wherever you go, too!
