knitted FO

Back in April, I started a pair of toe up socks for WM.

I learnt a long time ago to knit two socks at the same time to save gauge issues later!

I finished the first sock but the cast off was too tight so I put the sock away.

At that time, the toe and the foot of the second sock had been knitted.

Due to workshop I am tutoring next week, I thought I should unpick that too-tight cuff and finish it. In the process, I discovered the second sock which I hadn't even thought about.

So, on Tuesday night I turned the heel and knitted most of the leg.

Yesterday I finished the leg and knitted the cuff.

Both socks were finished after dinner last night and so the colours may be a little "off" due to the use of artificial light and flash.
the colour changes in the yellow are in the yarn not the photo!
WM is very happy with the socks; they fit perfectly - which I guess is the point of knitting socks from the toe up!


  1. I bought this colour when it was on sale at Spotlight.

    Socks look great.
    How do this sock yarn wear are they scratchy against the skin ?

  2. really nice looking stripes!
