I’m on a sock roll! And you can’t stop me!
(Actually, you probably could, I’m pretty distract-able.)
I’ve been digging through my overly-extensive sock yarn collection and trying to use up some yarn that’s been hanging around for way too long. (I once got overly-excited about a sock yarn sale and ended up coming home with about 2 dozen skeins of yarn… that was probably three years ago, and I’ve still barely made a dent in it.)
Anyway, I found enough turquoise-blue for a pair of socks, and I thought I’d get cracking. But this time, I feel like trying something new.
95% of the time, I work my socks top-down. But this time, I think I’m going to switch it up. I’m going… toe up! Woah! I’m a loose cannon!
That means I get to break out Judy’s Magic Cast On! I’ve used it a handful of times- mostly years ago, before I got so set in my sock-knitting ways.And, I gotta tell you. That is one satisfying technique. (It’s a little bit of a pain at first, but dang! Once you get past the first few rows, it looks really nice!)
What do you think I should do next?
