Toe-Up Socks with Gusset Heel

pink Toe-Up Socks with Gusset Heel

These socks seemed to take me forever to knit. I knit them using US #2 2.75 needles and the yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Hand-Painted in the shade of Hollywood. This was my very first attempt at knitting toe-up socks and I am pleased with my results. I had to learn a figure 8 cast on and a sewn bind off. I plan to try some other methods with my next pair of socks.


I’ve already got my yarn wound for my next few pairs of socks. I can’t wait to dive into it.



Dainty Textured Blanket

Crochet Afghan & Pillow

I whipped up this super cute afghan to match the pillow that I made my Daughter last year. I am pretty sure that I set a new record for myself by crocheting the entire thing in five days. This afghan was crochet with 14 balls of I Love This Yarn in the shade of Sherbet. I used 2 strands at a time and a size K hook.
