Recommended Course: Toe-Up, Two-at-a-Time Socks

Toe-up socks are the hippest and most addictive project in knitting right now, and it's easy to see why.

Knitters love making their socks from the toe-up because they can try on as they go, knit two-at-a-time, and there's no heel flap or picking up stitches.

The ideal project for any intermediate knitter to learn, improve, and enjoy.
