quickie post


i have created a new orphan ... but, this orphan is not like the others ... she's toe up and magic loop! i followed the instructions for anna bell's elfine's socks, with the exception of using ribbing at the top.

now, i should be good and cast on for the mate. i might. i should. but, i just wound something else into a ball, which i'm eager to swatch!

misc: 1 turbos on body, 0 turbos on cuff, pistachio colorway by claudia hand painted yarns.

Gorgeous! Hooray for the toe-up/magic loop sock! That's how I've been doing the ones I just finished.. though they aren't pretty and lacey like yours.

yay for a finished sock using a fun new method. it looks AWESOME!

It looks beautiful! You can't make a pair of socks without making the first one, right? Just force yourself to do the toe for the second one before you start anything new... I bet that second sock will practically knit itself!

The sock is beautiful! I was just looking at elfine the other day and thinking I should give them a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
