Tiptoe Socks



Another handknit gift completed. As I pointed out earlier, although I can knit from a chart, this doesn't prevent me from assuming the socks are knit one way when they are in fact charted to knit in the other direction (cuff-down versus toe-up.) But I actually love the lace pointing toward the toe so it's a happy accident.

The heel is from the Anniversary Socks pattern from Favorite Socks, isn't it pretty?



I think these are my favorite socks yet. I really wish they were for me, but I hope that means that my sister will like them too. I haven't actually kept a single pair of socks for myself, (I also make bath bombs even though I don't actually take baths!) but soon I hope to have my very first pair of handknit socks.

Those are gorgeous, Sasha. Make another pair for you!

And wow, do I suck, because it's been almost a whole month, and I never told you how much I liked those bath bombs. The fragrance was really subtle, and the oils very moisturizing. When's your bath bomb party? :)

it is in my nature to make and make and make and constantly give away everything to those I love. So I have very little handmade anything left for myself! it is definitely good to spoil oneself once in a blue moon.

Those socks look sooo nice :) Some day I will learn to knit like you do! Right now about all I can do are toques and mittens...and the scarf of course ;p.
