[Ravelry FOs] Skinny SKYP socks

Apr 7 2012:
The pattern is for sport weight yarn (which we cannot buy easily at the LYS in the UK). I am trying this out using a light fingering weight yarn (left-overs from another pair of socks) and a 2.25 mm needle (magic-loop).

If I manage to complete this it will be my first ever completed top-down (non-toe-up) sock!

My blog post about these socks: I have finished one and started the second!

I find the row of purl stitches between the cuff ribbing and the leg portion of the sock pattern a little strange and, if I was to knit them again I might leave that row out. I might also use this stitch pattern on a toe-up sock pair using Wendy D Johnson’s “basic gusset heel” in the future as I am enjoying knitting it.
