Thank you! I just knitted them top down one at a time. I bought a book the other day on how to make them toe up on circular needles two at a time. I want to try that next. It's suppose to make it more simple but it looks complicated to me. How quickly we get into ruts!wackycat4 said:WoW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I haven't done socks yet, Your's are gorgeous!!
They are my next project;but I'm trying the magic loop way- We'll see. What way did you knit them?
Good news! My first crocus bloomed yesterday! Yippeeeeeeee!!!!!! I'm in southern PA, so those of you farther north can expect to see signs of spring soon.jogs4201 said:Perhaps one day it will be spring in PA and we can think of flip flop socks for knitting...lol

One of my coworkers asked me how much it cost to knit a pair of socks...since I tend to use yarns that cost a bit I told her that it averages from $12.00 - $20.00 a pair..she thought that was outrageous, until I pointed out that the knitting of the socks was "entertainment" that ended with a usable product ...price of a movie, large popcorn and a soda..but I have socks when I'm done!!!
