Tangled Up In Blue
When I heard of this KAL, I just had to join as I love knitting socks from toe up. I only started knitting socks this year & was not really enjoying it because of picking up of stitches on the heel - my 1st pair did not looked right. Then I read about Wendy's toe up technique & decided to give it a try - now I am addicted to socks knitting & had knitted 4 pairs so far. I am knitting my 5th pair & decided to try a different technique for the toe - the Magic Cast-On....for Tangled Up In Blue socks, a free pattern from Persistent Lana Grossa's Fantasy Sock yarn (cottom/wool) ....
I only managed to get the Magic Cast-On right after the 3rd attempt & finished the 1st sock - love the way the heel was formed - easy & effective. I just cast on the 2nd sock & the toe is not really looking that great - may have to frog it & give it another try !

Congratulations, Ann! Your sock looks fabulous! Thanks for sharing the patten with us, too. I will add it to our collection in the sidebar for others to use. I like the looks of your heel so it will be high on my list of future knits!
