On The Needles

Remember my toe up socks from last week?  I decided I don't like knitting toe up socks. Sorry Kat. It wasn't in my comfort zone. They felt too big and sloppy and confusing, so I pulled them off the needles and started again. Plain Jane simple socks, cuff down, not much thinking on my part.

I've worked on these every evening but it's hard to make good progress when the eyelids fall closed and the needles don't move.

It's On The Needles Friday at Patchwork Times. I can't wait to see what everyone is working on.

Love the colors! I can't see how 2 at a time cuff down would be any less cumberson than 2 toe up!?? I each our own the end result is all that matters and that we enjoy it

I'm with you on the toe up and I keep thinking I should give it another try but . . why? Your socks always make me want to try two at a time again but I get so darned confused with that too.

I share your thoughts on toe-up socks. I'll stick to the cuff down patterns.

I really like the color of your socks. I'll be happy with any direction if only my needles were smart enough to make socks.

I prefer top down also!
