Thank you! I'm not keen on the middle one, but love the other two. I have done top down, but not toe up yet. I'm not super pro at socks yet, but have been able to work my way through a few. My children are now requesting I knit them socks now that they have seen me work on them.
I want a sock that the leg will stay up. That is stretchy, but won't give way and get loose. Would it depend on the fiber I'm using? I prefer cotton, but I haven't seen sock yarn out of cotton as of yet. Is there a source I haven't noticed yet?
