I have to tell you about something that's got me super excited.
This two at a time, toe up sock cast on from Patty Joy!
I'm not usually a sock person, but I had the best time hand painting a sock blank this weekend, so I'm anxious to see how they'll turn out. I grabbed my unopened book Socks from the Toe Up and found a basic pattern to use, since the yarn is all crazy and I want to show off the craziness on a simple fabric. There are several cast ons described in this book, and I tried each one suggested for the pattern, but found it a little tricky to apply them to a two at a time method. It was pretty late at night, so I'm sure that didn't help. Frustrated, I finally found this video, which seems too good (and easy) to be true -
but it really works! I can't imagine using any other cast on for two at a time toe up socks
now that I've found this one. I just had to share it with you!
