The socks I'm working on from the book Knitting Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy D. Johnson are almost 1/2 way done! I was a little bit skeptical about toe-ups, just because I have never successfully completed a pair. However, this book is amazing for walking you through the process. I am calling them my Elizabeth Bennet socks because they remind me of her for some reason. Plus, she is my favourite Jane Austen heroin. I'm planning a manly version from another pattern from this book to make the complimentary Mr. Darcy socks for my husband. I borrowed the book from my sweet friend, Christy, but I am planning on purchasing my own copy as soon as I can get a few $$ together. Wendy's blog Wendy Knits is packed full of technical info, free patterns, and funny little tidbits about her daily life. She is the guru of the toe-up socks!
