It's the toe-up sock party and I just got here.
For all you hip knitters out there who have been toe-upping for some time already, I'm sure you're smiling knowingly to yourselves at the new convert. I'm also pretty sure you understand that I am now hooked and, have to say, may never go back.
I'm calling these my Sweet Caterpillar socks because they're made from Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Yarn in the Sweetie colourway. Yummy.
They're done in a caterpillar stitch that I added to a basic toe-up sock pattern I discovered I had in my Teach Yourself Visually: Knitting Design book.
They go pretty quickly, even in these very fine sock yarn weights, and that includes my limited sitting ability these days. I like the technique so much, I've started another pair.
And I've gauge swatched for a third. Yippee! Knitting should be so exciting all the time!
Happy Weekend, M
