Finished Socks

Just some finished socks for today. These were knit from Regia 4 ply on a single 2.25 mm circular needle. They are 68 sts around.

These are my first pair of toe up socks. I based them on the instructions from Interweave Knits Summer 2007 with minor modifications like starting with more cast on stitches and doing a 60% heel.  What did I learn? An easy provisional cast on and that I need to practice short row heels.

Will I do toe up socks again?  Yes, I’d try it again.  Will I do a short row heel again? Yes, for the purpose of mastering the technique. I think I will always prefer a heel flap, but I should give the short row heel a fair chance and try it at least once more.
