Three Weeks, Four Students, (Almost) Five Socks

toeupsocks.jpgI just finished a First-Time Toe-Up Socks class at Rae’s shop this past Thursday. We had a blast! Three of the four students chose the heavy weight of Socks that Rock yarn, and one chose a pewter-gray Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran.

They did a great job. Two ladies finished one sock, one started a second and needs only to bind off the first, and the fourth is also ready to bind off the first. Considering we all have lives that do not allow knitting as much as we might like, this was a great result.

I like the variety here. At left we have a rolled-cuff “bootie” or slipper, then a traditional-looking K2P2 ribbed leg, then two pair with stockinette legs topped with an inch or two of ribbing. This is the whole idea of my pattern… to give folks guidelines for the foot and then let them go in any direction they prefer when they get to the ankle.

Go, grrls! Nice job.

    Ohhh great socks!!!
    I’m thinking of picking up the skill of working on two circulars..maybe I’ll combine that with a pair of FTTU and see what happens.
