So now I'm away and loving every minute of this technique. I can see now that toe ups will become my favourite method of sock knitting. I love that I'll be able to use up *all* the yarn and not be left wondering if in fact, I'll even have enough yarn to finish a sock as we do when knitting from the top down. This has inspired me to try a top down jumper (sweater) as well. I'm sure I'll learn lots of nifty little secrets when I start that project as well.
I actually started these a week ago and am about to cast off that first sock. I plan on using EZ's sewn bind-off. The most unusual fact for me, is that I can't wait to knit the second sock. There's a gazillion other patterns out there that I'd like to try and I have a ton of sock yarn (and still buying....shhhh) but yes, I'm loving these toe-ups SO much that I'm busting to start sock two! Yay!
Oh....... the yarn is Trekking colour #100 and I'm using 2.25mm Ivore dpn's which I LOVE for sock knitting. Just wish they came in shorter a length.
