First-ever toe-up knitted sock, and I’m hooked! It’s a straight knit with a ribbed cuff for my better half, worked in Serenity Garden Grey Wolf by #zenyarngarden
(milled in Italy, hand-dyed in Canada). 70% superfine merino wool, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon. Sooooo soft and lovely to work with!
With such a long commute to work, I have to be doing something productive or it just feels like wasted time. I used to work on my smocking, but knitting socks is my new thing. .
The toe-up method took me some time (and a few YouTube videos) to get my head around, but I’ve finally got it sorted and locked. .
Gotta go — he wants the 2nd one. 😂
