It made me smile that I knitted these socks in green wool and the designer is called "Verts". My friend loves green!
I had some leftover wool and have already started a second pair, from the toe up this time and two-at-a-time so I can use up all the leftover wool evenly between the two socks. Also because I found a picot cast-off method which I want to try next!
For the sock knitters out there: I don't know about you but I find that when I finish top-down socks with Kitchener stitches to close the toe, I always end up with the last couple of stitches too loose and I have to fiddle with them and sometimes tack them down with my needle so it looks tidy. I find that unsatisfactory. Knitting toe-up solves that problem for me as I find the toe really easy to make (using Judy's Magic Cast-on Method).
I'm also wondering about trying a rounder toe shape...
have you tried one you like?
I'd love to hear your suggestions.
I may change the pattern ever so slightly on this second pair and it will have to be two coloured as I will be using up other left-over wool to go with the green of which I won't have enough.
I'm making slow progress on the doily - more green! - because I'm spending too much time knitting at the minute. I'm more than half-way through the second round of split rings.
There is third row of split rings coming next.
So just more of the same!
