Toe Up 

I decided to get Knit Picks Fancy Feet Anklets.  It is the first time I have tried toe up socks.  My first pair I used smaller needles and some yarn on hand to make a pair for my daughter.  I knew my daughter has smaller but thicker feet.  Now I am starting another pair on larger needles and Knit Picks Stroll Sock Yarn.   I really like how soft and stretchy the stroll yarn is versus Deborah Norville’s Serenity Sock Weight.  I do like the convenience of picking up serenity at JoAnn’s but the color and texture of stroll yarn is superior.  This has been my purely for pleasure distressing knitting, unlike the gifts I’m working on for family.  I don’t think I will ever tire of learning new techniques.  I even ordered, The Knitter’s Book of Socks.  Great book!  I originally saw it at my local yarn shop, but couldn’t afford to spend that much but when I was putting together my order on Knit Picks I couldn’t resist the 40% price tag.   I read through chapter after chapter breaking down socks right down to the fiber.  Love learning new details about my latest obsession.  It’s a good thing I sell enough to feed my knitting addiction!
