Still not really a sock knitter…

But last Wednesday Michelle showed me Judy’s Magic Cast On, so I can try toe-up socks. This cast on was just featured by Cat Bordhi (sock goddess) in Knitter’s magazine. Judy is a fellow PDX Knit Blogger, and she’s becoming very famous!

Later that evening, I bought some gorgeous sock yarn from Lorajean. She brought it to knit nite, looking for input on new labels. This won’t be the new label, but I love the new yarn!

There’s a blue undertone to the whole colorway, even in the pink and purple. And you know how I love blue.

I guess I’ll be knitting some socks, soon!

    Toe up socks are the way to go. Unless I have to I don’t want to make another top down pair again.

  2. I’m still not convinced. I love my top down socks on dpns. This current foray into toe-up is an academic exercise so far!

  3. Looking forward to hearing how it goes. I still have yet to try my first pair of socks.

  4. I love cuff down and haven’t tried toe up – looking forward to seeing your progress!

  5. I haven’t tried toe up socks yet either. I am game though. That yarn color way is beautiful I can’t wait to see your socks all done up.

  6. This reminds me of the blueberries from a few posts before :) Can’t wait to see what you knit up!
