On the Needles – June 26, 2015

Sock 062615I finally did it! After ripping out and starting over multiple times I finally got the hang of Judy’s Magic Cast On and Magic Loop to get the toe done. I had forgotten to take it on vacation with me, so I couldn’t work on it until we got home. Took me a whole afternoon to get it figured out and now I have all the increases completed. Now it’s just mindless stockinette until I get to the point where I need to work on the heel, and I’ll have to figure out how to do the heel too! I’m liking the way it’s knitting up with the stripes, doubt I’ll be able to get the second one to match exactly, but that’s ok with me, as long as I can complete them! I’m using Red Heart Heart & Sole yarn in the Razzle Dazzle color-way.

Go over and visit Judy at Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting this week.

  1. Your socks are going to be great. I find that Youtube videos help a lot and there seems to be one for anything and everything. That’s how I taught myself to knit socks. Have fun!

  2. I took a toe up sock class a couple of years ago–never did get the hang of it. Planning to try again some day.

  3. WOW, I love the look of your toe up sock. You are ahead of me. I still have not taken the time to learn the toe up. I’m so comfortable with toe down and I love making socks, I guess I don’t want to start over. lol Seriously, I do want to try that technique though. Your yarn is very pretty too.
