Socks the Second
I've been really bad about posting FO's lately! I finished these socks a good month ago (at least!) Oh well, here's the vital info anyway.
These are my second pair of socks and I decided to try the toe-up method that Wendy lays out in her book. I know it's on her website somewhere as well. I used Regia sock yarn on #1 needles, Magic Loop style. I love the Magic Loop! I started off with 60 sts around, did my first short row heel (which I like much better than the heel flap) and then 60 sts for the leg with a little bit of 2x2 rib around the top. On the second sock I decreased to 56 sts for the leg part, I found that more comfortable.
At this point I'd like to include my spi and such, but I am at work and the socks are at home. I shall measure when I get home tonight!
As for the yarn... I really like the coloring of this particular kind of Regia. Each of the plies is a different color and it gives the whole thing a very uniform and yet also varied look. I like it!
