Toe-up socks are great!
We look forward to getting to know you as well, thank you for being here.
Hi! I used to live in Bastrop, well Cedar Creek. My DH worked at the federal prison. My son was born in Austin 24 years ago. A lot has changed! We were there when the new Walmart Supercenter was built. Crazy how time flies! I bet I wouldn’t even recognize it. It was so sad when the theatre burned. That has been a few years, as well. I miss the BBQ, but I certainly do not miss the fire ants. I enjoy knitting socks and think toe-up are great!
High Neighbor! I’m between Walburg and Weir east of Georgetown. Someday I’ll turn the heal on the pairs of toe up socks on my needles. I hope.
Hi, loraRua … we live in the far SE tip of Colovista off McAllister Rd. We don’t have fire ants but do also love the bbq! I just finished a baby-girl headband ,Toe-Up ruffled booties for a September-expected great-granddaughter plus a feather& fan bordered blanket. Love to knit! But, tried a tubular bind-off and gave up on that! Watch 3-4 videos and tried several directions but too fiddly!
I love Toe-Up Socks! I’ve knitted at least 100 pairs of them. My family all have them and always wanting more!
You are quite the knitter! Over 100?! Congratulations on your expected great-granddaughter! I’m loving being a grandmother, I wonder if I’ll ever get to that lofty height of being a great-grandmother. My maternal grandmother was one and it was pretty awesome for my kids. She almost made it to great great, but passed away 10 days shy of her 99th year.
Hi GayleP!! I prefer toe-up socks to cuff-down. But my passion is sweaters and cardigans. Nice to meet you!!
I need someone to show me how to do Judy’s magic cast on. I’ve tried to figure it out from pictures and YouTube, but to no avail.
Do you need help for JMC for toe up socks? Two at a time? that’s how I knit my socks!!
I need to figure out how to do JMCO. Two at a time socks is a great idea, but I’m convinced I’d knit the socks together. I wish I could figure JMCO out- it looks SO useful, and not just for socks.
Howdy neighbor - I love Bastrop and try to get out that way every chance I get. We live just outside of Austin between Driftwood and Dripping Springs - or as we like to call it - just west of Weird.
I’ve tried toe-up socks, but my preferred method is cuff-down with a double gusset. It fits my freakishly high arch perfectly.
I live in Katy. Nice to see some more Texans on here. I love knitting socks. Unfortunately it’s so hot in my area so I don’t knit quite as many now.
Hello @GayleP! Your username gave me a start, I too am a Gayle P (Peel).
I also originally read your intro as “Bishop Texas,” where my brother lives.
I’m not great on knitting socks, have done only one pair & they were cuff down.
