I hope not because there are lots more to come judging by the amount of sock yarn in my stash.
Opal Flamingo socks are finished. These were my on-the-go project since I did not have to refer to a pattern to knit them. I was using this yarn for my Sidewinders, but I need to master the increase stitches and perfect my gauge to make a successful pair sideways. I will try again in the future.
Next we have the Friday Harbor Socks from Nancy Bushes’ Knitting On the Road. I just love her patterns. I had to add a ribbed repeat on the sides and two knit stitches to the pattern, but even with the additional stitches these socks knit up quickly.
Finally we have my newest project – toe up socks. This is my first pair knit toe up. I’m using the instructions from the Summer issue of Interweave Knits. I found the cast-on and short row heel to be relatively easy. There is room for improvement in my heel stitches, but not so much I felt the need to frog. Also, through all my blog reading I knew my big heel would require that I work the short row heel over 60% of the stitches so that also led to my success using this method.
The biggest downside so far is that knitting toe up makes my LONG socks look even longer!
