What I've Been Toe Up To

Here's what I've been up to:

toe up two at a time socks.

I've just cast on in a lovely burgundy and white self-patterning yarn.
I used this video from youtube:

Now I'm doing increases as demonstrated on this video from youtube:

I'll be doing this for awhile.  When I get to 20 stitches on each sock (front side), I'll begin alternating with a knit row in between increase rows so that the toes will not look funny when they're done.

I'm reading:

It's full of meat and potatoes; so, it may take me awhile to finish it! ~smile~
May I suggest?


  1. Toe up socks are fun... I tend to forget that it is not the usual way to make them since that is the only way I make them LOL
    Looking forward to seeing them on the needles :)

  2. I'm attempting toe-up 2 at a time socks too. I'll have to check out those videos. Maybe for the next pair... (if I can finish these ones ;-)

  3. I prefer to crochet, but this looks like fun to knit!

  4. Rachel, I ended up pulling them out, I didn't like them.

    Kate, I've got to try again. Did you finish yours?

    Kaeli H., I think crochet is much easier for me. Your comment brought these videos to mind again. Maybe I'll start another pair.


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
