short row socks

YO short rows all the way, with zigzag BO

new knitting skills acquired this weekend: YO short row for socks.

after seeing so many knitters trying out toe up socks, i was extremely intrigued to get do it myself. at first i followed purly's tutorial, which is really helpful. then, i looked at wendy's and alison's toe up tutorial from knitty.com. but what really put everything in prospective, was the baby socks instructions from interweave. i made a little baby sock to learn all the techniques, which was the most satisfying thing this weekend, as far as knitting went.

that little red sock will need to have a partner, then they will go to australia to meet mia! i had finished the friday harbor socks for nikkishell, and i think it's only fair to let mia has her own pair of handknit socks too!!


yet another pair of friday harbor

knit project: knitting on the road - friday harbor
difficulty (1-5): 2.1
size: women's medium (50 stitches, long tail cast on)
yarn: mountain colors bearfoot in evergreen
knitting specs: US 3 cir.

You did another pair already! Wow, those are beautiful yet again :) I love the little red sock and have thought that I need to try it too after reading Grumperina's post on toe up. Have a good week!

Hey I really like that pair of socks! The patterns really nice. You are a real fast knitter!

WOW!!! I love them, they look fabulous! Mia is going to love her socks too. Although she's bound to say "Phwoargh", as she says this every time she sees socks or shoes, even if they are clean. hehe.

This little sock is really cute and needs a partner soon!

I am working on my first pair of short row heels now... haven't gotten to the heel part yet though. Those Friday Harbor socks are lovely! The black really shows off the lace!
