|Finished Toe-Up Ribbed Socks|
- first I used smaller needles; 2.75mm made a snugger fit than 3.25mm
- eliminated the cuff altogether and just worked my K3P1 rib till the end
- to ensure a loose bind-off, I worked the last round using 3.25mm needles and I also cast off with the bigger needles
When I cast off the last stitch, I had decided no more socks. But now that I'm wearing them, I wanna make more. They don't have to be finished right away; and they do make a wonderful portable project, especially when I need a mindless activity. Guess I better look through the stash for more sock yarn. And I think I'm gonna peruse my patterns too. It'll be nice to try something different.
As you may surmise, my socks represent "an ending" to a project I started in December (can't believe its been that long!). As for "the beginning", take a gander at this sight: what was once tall dried grass and brush is now a plowed field.
