My first toe up socks


Finished these last night, pattern is 'falling in lovve' from Magknits, yarn is Posh Yarn Emily in shade Jig, they are lovely and soft and the yarn was a joy to knit with.

I haven't tackled toe ups yet. They seem a sensible idea but I keep sticking to the cuff down.

But I did finally tackle another heel type so maybe...

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Lovely socks. :0) And Emily is pleasure to knit with. Even though the label says handwash, I always throw mine in a 30 degree wash and they come out beautifully, although I do like to block them after each wash.

Thanks for the washing info Linda, I was going to hand wash as have already felted one pair of socks in the machine, got a bit left so may do a square to test wash.

They are beautiful...I like my toe ups aswell now (especially if you have a limited amount of yarn)

That colourway is just so pretty.

I love your socks - toe up is my favourite way. And the Emily looks lovely, I'm looking forward to trying it!

They are lovely socks! I've had a look at a toe up pattern and it doesn't look too scary! Once I've finished the dreaded black socks I'll have a go.

Thanks for the comment you kindly left on my blog.
I have to confess that my knowledge of knitting is confined to what I have learned from Soo, a master of her art. But I do know that socks are tricky and these look great!
