My Toe Up Progress ~ I’m loving it!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all my friends who are Moms! 

Me &  MomHappy Mother’s Day to my Mom!!!

 

I’m so excited about my toe up sock endeavor and can’t believe how fast this really is going.  I have found that cuff down is going to slow for me and I think this is one reason I’m loving my sock right now!   So, I casted on in the evening of May 8th and today, I just finished my heel and will be starting the leg.

Now I have to share that I have totally spaced it and forgot that I did a test knit for my friend Anne about two years ago that was a toe up and it turned out quite well but for some reason I never tried it again.

I'm so proud of my short row heel!

My husband just informed me that if I keep knitting at this rate, I should be able to do a pair of socks in two weeks. The challenge is on!

Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!

    Lovely photo of you and your mother. Great sock, too! I always knit socks toe-up. I started that way and really like it. I get a good fit too so I’m not switching direction. Just occasionally there’s a nice looking sock where I know the pattern won’t work ‘upside down’.

      Thank you 😊. I’m thinking I may be a toe up kind of girl going forward. For some reason my so is going much faster.
