Tip Toe in the Grass
At last! The 'birthday socks that must not be seen' are done and I've moved on to another pair of socks. The yarn looks a bit familiar, doesn't it. It's the same Opal Dreamcatcher (#1234) that I used for the guys' wristers. I am sure I will be sick of gray by the time I'm finished, but I think the finished socks will be worn and appreciated.
I'm knitting with #0 dpns, 80 stitches. I started with a rectangle toe, and when my increases were done I put k2p2 rib on the instep. My son has long and narrow feet. He measures 10" around and 11" long. I plan to switch to 00 dpns for about 2" when I finish the heel flaps. He said his first pair of socks was too loose through the ankles. I have knitted at least 6 pairs of socks using 2 socks/2 circs during the past year, and picked up my dpns for my Christmas knitting. What a difference! I may never try the 2 circs again. I never got used to that method, and I think I was avoiding knitting socks because I felt I had to make the 2 circs work.
