aejclarke Okay so I finished this sock over a week ago and I just HATE the toe. It feels like it's an evil sock that wants to turn my toes into one mutant evil toe. How easy would it be to rip back and start the toe again in a different way? #operationsockdrawer #sockknitting #knittersofinstagram #knitting #handknit#handmade 2w
  •   snippetsandstash LOVE that bag! Sorry, I'm no help with the toe, I always knit top down. 2w
  •   aejclarke @snippetsandstash this was my first top down sock... So I'm thinking of putting in a lifeline and doing the toe similar to how I would do it toe up just opposite... 2w
  •   aejclarke @snippetsandstash should have said the bag is from AmeliaXJoy on etsy 2w
  •   seasidegirlknits The sock looks fab so I'd say frog back if you're not happy I pick up the stitches on 2 dpns before undoing as I tend to lose them otherwise! If you'd prefer a more rounded toe, I like the instructions in Vanilla Latte which is a free pattern on Rav. Good luck 😀 2w
  •   00yrnlvr00 Love your bag! 2w
  •   elliejooneillmunro put in a lifeline with a needle and thread before you rip back, so you won't lose any of your stitches! 2w
  •   followingamanda82 I love your project bag! I can't warm to those angular toes either. I might try the vanilla latte pattern too! 2w

  •   pamelajane60 Two at a time??? I need to learn that method...you do beautiful work! And I just LOVE this has connected me to women all over the WORLD! So so crazy cool! Will follow u with pleasure! 3w
  •   daisystitches They are going to be some great socks 2w
  •   yantantetherayarns Loving this sock-in-progress. I did my first toe-up sock the other day and loved the fit, but found the rib cuff a bit slack??? May go down even smaller on my needle for cuff next time. 2w
  •   aejclarke @yantantetherayarns so weird isn't it! I've knit 8 pairs of toe ups and the cuff was slack every time. If I can get this toe right then cuff down will be my style I much prefer decreasing than increasing anyway! 2w
  •   yantantetherayarns I guess a way around it would be to do toe up until where you'd start the cuff, leave sts on cable, then do cuff cuff-down and then graft on to the leg stitches!?! Bit of a faff, but it might work! 2w
  •   aejclarke That's crazy talk! @yantantetherayarns I'm all about quick finished with little faff 2w

aejclarke I'm knitting my first cuff down sock. I'm blaming @bryonybears for this! I'm loving t so far and my ribbing is magically squidging up... I swear with all my toe ups, the ribbing naturally lies pretty flat... #operationsockdrawer #sockknitting #sockyarn #cuffdown #sockyarn #knittersofinstagram #knitting #handknit #handmade 4w
  •   the_ellipsissy I learnt toe up first and was resistant to cuff down thinking it old fashioned! But there are advantages to both. I prefer cuff down now! 4w
  •   theneedleneuk I have knit cuff down & toe up socks. I start my sock project by splitting the skein into 2 balls. Cuff down socks I'm able to get a better fit & toe up I maximize the yardage. 4w
  •   nimpin Pretty! I think I prefer toe up for the fit, but like you I find the cuff sits better with top down. 4w
  •   ellieknitter I always had the same problem with toe up. Could never figure it out! 4w
  •   aejclarke @ellieknitter I can't work out how that makes any sort of sense! 4w
  •   snippetsandstash I'm a top down and dpn's kind of gal. I keep saying I'll try toe up one day. 4w
  •   aejclarke Ugh why do I knit so tight? No way that's going to fit using. 2.5mm And the only 2.75 needle I own is in use. Pooop 4w

aejclarke Well I can't take a picture of this that shows the colours nicely... But this yarn is just so pretty. It's 'there be dragons' by #sparkleduck and it's lovely. Toby asked me if I'm knitting a dragon wing before I told him the name of the colourway!

aejclarke When yellow is your favourite colour and you like knitting... This is the best sight #yarn #knitting #knittersofinstagram #honeycowl 1mon
  •   wklilly I have 4 Honeys in Malabrigo and they make the best cowls. Love that color! 1mon
  •   aejclarke @wklilly what size needles did you use? I have such a tight gauge I was wondering if I'd get away with 4.5mm. And would you suggest doing the double length... As that's what I'd prefer but I don't want it to take forever! 1mon
  •   wklilly @aejclarke -US 8. I've made all the sizes, but my fav is the large loop to double up. It's polar warm. You are gonna love it. 1mon
  •   nimpin Perfection! Love that colour so much! 1mon
  •   yesterdaydream What a lush color 1mon
  •   knvalle You go girl! 1mon

aejclarke Meh. Love the yarn... Not in love with the stitch pattern... And I don't like the toe colour. But I want a different coloured toe. I'm so full of indecision today! #operationsockdrawer #knitting #knittedsocks #knittersofinstagram #knit 2mon

aejclarke Just so flipping awesome. LOOK at those colours! Shame the mini skeins are too small for my blanket but it just gives me an excuse to make scrappy socks #sockyarn #knit #knitting #operationsockdrawer #miniskeins 2mon

aejclarke I think I'm liking this more with each square I add. Still not sure though... Everyone else's just look so much better! #scrapyarn #sockyarn #sockyarnblanket #miteredsquare 2mon
