Hi everyone! I'm very excited to be making a pair of socks that fit several "first" criteria:
1. my first toe-ups (duh!)
2. my first tiny gauge needles (size 1)
3. my first socks on two circular needles
4. my first 100% cotton socks
I'm using cotton sock yarn made by Hibiscuits Girl of The Black Stitch in the "Stronghold" colorway, on Addi Turbo 1s. I used the toe-up pattern from Simple Socks: plain and fancy, used a regular short-row toe, did a reverse stockinette on the bottom of the foot since I've got sensitive tootsies, and I'm about to start what is called a "Sherman" heel - apparently the wraps are much flatter and the whole heel looks much neater in this style. Once I get through that, I will be doing a simple k2 p2 ribbing. Once I see how this yarn is worn, I will attempt some fancy socks using lace patterns.
