Yarn Along

I could no longer resist. I wound up my hand spun to start on my toe up socks. I even started one of my books that I got for Christmas. I'm only on page 5 so I can't give an opinion yet. 
I'm really hoping this yarn wears well. It's kinda thick so I'll be wearing it with my clogs or around the house.
This is my first toe up sock so we shall see if I become a convert. I'm making up my own pattern as I go along (shocking huh).

So what's on your needles, hooks, bobbins and Kindle?  Come share over at Ginny's

I don't blame you for not being able to resist, that yarn is perfect for spring, so happy.

I want to know what you think of knitting a sock toe up, I haven't tried it yet.

can't wait to see if you are a convert. I know I will not-it's cuff down no matter what for me :)

Gosh that yarn is colorful - going to make great socks.
Good luck with the toe up and making up your own pattern at the same time!!

I would knit all my socks toe-up if possible. It's a perfect way to knit so that you can use up all your yarn.

Love, love, love that yarn. Good luck with the sock pattern.

Wow, those are wonderful colors for the socks. I bet they will be really comfy. I have a book about knitting toe up socks, but so far I haven't done it...maybe in April. HA!

Your yarn is gorgeous and will make some fun socks. Once I get past the fiddly cast-on, I like toe-up.
