Video Knitting 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.

How to take off one or both socks from your two-at-a-time knitting project to unravel or fix mistakes and then put it/them back on.
Adding a textured heel flap is an easy way to make the socks more interesting AND to make the heel more durable at the same time.
The slip-stitch heel is super-easy, and it is also nice and stretchy – great if you’re not sure how big the sock-recipient’s ankle is.
The Eye-of-the-Partridge heel pattern adds durability and a lovely textured look to your sock’s heel flap. Knit using a combination of slipped and knit stitches, you can knit this on top-down or toe-up socks.
Recommended Fabric Care: Soak by Soak Wash
My favorite no-rinse wool wash for blocking your knit garments. Comes in lovely scents and also unscented. Just squirt some in cold water and add your garment (or gauge swatch) and let soak for 15-20 minutes. Squeeze to remove water and lay flat to dry or block.
Recommended Fabric Care: Sock Blockers by Knitter's Pride
Sock blockers are the perfect way to make your finished socks look their best. Whether you are going to keep them for yourself or give the socks as a gift, the last step before you wear your knit socks is always to block them. The even and smooth shape persists even after machine washing and drying.
Recommended Book: The Magic Loop by Bev Galeskas
This amazing book is what started it all for me. In it, Beverly Galeskas clearly explains how to use Sarah Hauschka’s ingenious technique of knitting in the round on one long circular needle.
“Socks and more” is right! Anything you can knit in the round, you can knit on Magic Loop, with no laddering, quickly, easily, and without using DPNs. Hooray! Thanks, Bev and Sarah!
