workin' the socks

I take back every negative thing I said in this post. The beginning of my first toe up sock using the knit two at a time method was a bit rocky at first, but after those first few inches I found my groove! How satisfying to complete a pair of socks at the same time and to be assured the pair will be exactly the same length and same gauge.I have already worn my newly finished Basic Socks by Wendy Johnson and found them to physically warm my tootsies and mentally warm my heart. Click. Click. Click. That's the sound of my addi needles knitting up the next pair of socks from this book. My Diamond Gansey Toe Up socks should be simple lace loveliness when knit in a pale blue Shibuikknits superwash merino yarn.

Looking to the future, I see two pair of Jay Walker socks that need mates, you don't believe me???...here is the proof! Once the Diamond Gansey pair is complete the Jay Walkers will be finished. They are way too p.r.e.t.t.y to not complete.
