HO Friday: Toe Up Socks With a Difference

My Toe Up Socks with a Difference have reached HO status!


That’s half finished status. I even wove in the ends after making sure the fit was okay.


It’s not as snug as some of my other pairs but it’s not falling off my foot by any means. The double gusset under the heel feels like it fits nicely but I’d like to wear them before I pass final judgement.


For now I’m going to just admire the fantastic color!! (The sock, not my pasty white winter leg 😂)

Happy Knitting!!

Slow But Steady Sock

My Double Gusset heel socks have been growing.


This has been my purse and webinar meeting knitting. I am almost to the full length of the leg. All that’s left is to start the cuff ribbing. I simply adore the yarn and the color. It makes me happy just to watch it develop. 

These socks may not have as much negative ease as my others. But the fit should still be fine. These might be destined to become my favorite bed socks!

Happy Knitting!!

WIP Wednesday: Toe Up Sock With A Difference

I made it past the heel on my Toe Up Socks With A Difference. These had kind of languished at the bottom of the WIP pile. I had completed the stockinette foot and was ready to start heel. This is a new to me heel construction and I needed time and brain space to sit down and just work through it. Both had been in short supply lately, but I finally made it!

The heel is a double gusset heel worked on the bottom of the foot. I’m following a Wendy D Johnson pattern that is free and found here on Rav. It was easy to follow and a pretty slick construction. Time will tell if it’s more or less comfortable than a traditional toe up gusset heel.

In the mean time I need to finish the leg of this sock and get moving on the second sock!

Happy Knitting!!
