A week

has gone by and I started another pair of socks. These are the Lacy Rib socks from Socks From the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson of WendyKnits.I finished kitchernering the toes of these socks today. They are Spring in Your Step socks by Kerry Crone. I used Enchanted Knoll Farm Hand-dyed Fingering Sock Yarn in the
Esmaralda colorway. I used KnitPicks 2.0mm circular needles and knitted using the Magic Loop method with both ends of the yarn to knit both socks at once.

I am still working on the Fraggle Squiggle socks and then the Lacy Ribs. I also pulled my Orkney Shawl out of hibernation to work on again.

Your socks look great! I love WendyKnits patterns, but I have yet to knit a toe-up sock that I liked. I can't get the hang of the provisional cast-on & I don't like the way my other CO methods look either. I haven't been able to knit a mice short row heel either. But, this doesn't mean that I'm going to quit trying. I just ordered her Toe-Up book from my library & she if she doesn't have any other techniques in the book that may be helpful.

I can't wait to see your other socks from the book.
