I thought I would have nothing blog-worthy these days as I am knitting Husband's socks - dark colour, 2x2 rib. But maybe I was wrong.
See the sock brothers here? They are testimonies of my first successful attempt at toe-up socks!
Before starting the Chutes-N-Ladders, I had tried numerous times ... on almost all the different methods ... all to no avail. Something I've learned over the years is that whenever such a situation arises, I should just let go ... at least for a short time. It's meaningless to keep on frustrating myself. When the time comes, I'll be able to do it.
Now the time has come! I followed the instructions of Pine Tree Toe Up Socks and used the figure-8 cast on. I am not sure if it is a good idea to 2x2 rib the top of the foot. This will have to wait for the end-user's comment. But I like the shape of the toe made from this method ... and it seems quite sturdy too.
I know another challenge is waiting for me ... the short row heels! I'll update you with the progress. For now, my little friend would like to wish you all a wonderful week ahead of you:
