My daughter hates the toe-seam on commercial socks, even when she’s not wearing shoes, so I set about to become a sock knitter for her sake. I really enjoyed making these, though there was a fair amount of ripping back at first. I knit them two-at-a-time using magic loop. They are toe up with a FLK Heel and a Russian lace bind-off for stretchiness. I found the bind-off in Custom Socks: Knit to Fit Your Feet by Kate Atherley, an amazing resource for all things socks.

This yarn was once a pair of fingerless mitts that I frogged a while back. I found it to be a little splitty, but that could be because of all the wear and tear it’s already been through. I will be making more socks for her from this yarn since purple is her favourite colour and she is very happy with these socks.

I want to make socks for myself now : )
