whole-lotta-sock socks - FO
I finally finished these...they're done on two circs, two at a time, toe-up, short-row heel (phew!) These were my first toe-up socks, as well as first short-row. There was a whole lotta this: that went into making these socks.

The yarn is KP self-striping something-or-other that has been discontinued. I'm not crazy about the yarn, but I really wanted to use it up and get it out of my stash. (Hence the long-ness - I kept knitting until I got to knee-length.)

They look great!!

I really should attempt the toe-up thing. I always wonder how long a pair of socks could be with one ball but when going from cuff down you don't want to cut it short and run out!! This way I guess you can just knit till you're out of yarn.

Very nicely done! I have socks made with that same yarn - they softened up a lot after they were washed.

They look great. I have some KP stripes in my stash. I have just been too chicken (or lazy) to do it. I have only made one sock. It was baby sized on DPNs and very frustrating. Notice I only said one sock, not a pair. I love the knee length.

I think they are great! I was just thinking I want to make knee high socks... where did you find the pattern, or was it on your own?

Very nice No shaping in the legs? You just kept going?
