For Dad’s birthday in August I knit him a pair of socks (I know big surprise, he’s always getting socks). These are the 14th pair I’ve knit for him. I used Knit Picks Stroll Sport in the Mink Heather colourway with the Wendy’s Generic Toe-Up Sock pattern.
I did make one change to these socks though. I tried out a different toe. Instead of my usual short-row toe, I figured out Judy’s Magic Cast On and worked from the tip of the toe. I really like this method, and I might have a new go to way to start socks. It’s less fiddly than the short-row toe and easier to put down and pick up again later.
