Sock Design

Here it is, finished. The first photo is the sock drying on the streatcher. While I was working the twenty five red rows for the foot, I was thinking I’d like to reinforce the toe too, so I repeated the cuff pattern. The plain grey on the toe is also knit with two strands of yarn although you can’t see that since they are the same color.

I like putting designs on the toe of a sock. I never know where I might take off my shoes. Even if I don’t, it is like having lace on my pettycoat. Even though nobody sees it, I know it is there and it makes me smile.
