Yarn Along

I'm joining Ginny of small things for the weekly Yarn Along. These are my first pair of toe-up socks from Wendy Knits' Socks from the Toe Up, and they're a Christmas gift for a friend. I love knitting socks, so these are the first of many this witnter. I'm still plodding along on the boring gray gloves for my husband; I'll get 'em done before Christmas.
I hope this cold weather is inspiring some awesome hand knits!  It's too cold to wear my new sweater (in last week's Yarn Along), but I've been wearing it anyway.  It's fabulous!  Until a gust of wind got to me through the bulky stitches while I was pumping gas this morning. 

The book is just okay.  It's an interesting page-turner, but I really want something more inspirational.  My next book will be.


  1. Pretty yarn! I've never knit socks yet...

  2. pretty yarn! what colorway is that? enjoy working on your first toe ups - i love knitting toe up!

  3. Beautiful Socks! I have not been so adventurous with my knitting quite yet, but your blog has given me lots to aspire to! Your sweater is absolutely gorgeous! Have a lovely day snuggling up inside!

  4. I agree the yarn is beautiful. I've never knit toe up socks before. I have a bunch of socks to knit this winter, so I will be looking into this. Thanks.

  5. I have a book that was given to me based on knitting from the toe up and I hope to give a try sometime soon...but, I've never knit socks before so it may be a while!
    I also love the colorway of your yarn, beautiful!
