The best toes?
I have discovered a new way of doing my sock toes and I love it. I had seen others do it this way, but being that I'm stubborn and don't like change, it took test knitting to get me to try it.
First I started with a provisional cast-on, but thanks to a tip I followed this video. This makes it so much easier and is quite quick too:
Then I did a short-row toe, my first toe done this way:
(for some reason the left side looks like steps. It's not really that way). I really like how the toe comes out this way. I think in the future I may do the toe shorter.
It is always exciting to learn a new way of doing something, especially when you like doing it the new way better. While trying to share my excitement with someone, I did seem to bore my cat to sleep though:
At least he is snoozing by a knitting book. The question around here now is: are those socks that are started, but not yet finished safe from being frogged? Or will I now want to re-knit them this way?
