Socks Finally

I’m finally making socks. At the beginning of the year I decided I wanted to try and use up my whole sock yarn stash. Unfortunately, I haven’t been doing much sock knitting. For my birthday my friends gave me a gift card to Barnes and Noble, so I got this book:

I’ve only ever made socks from the cuff down, and I’ve been wanting to try the toe-up technique. So I gave it a try:
I really like making socks this way so far. And the benefit of doing them toe-up is that if you have two balls of yarn, you can use all of the yarn possible without having to guess how much is enough to finish the sock. The leg ends up being the last part you knit, so you can keep knitting til it’s the length you want or you run out of yarn.

So Summer of Socks, here I come.
