I really love Judy's magic cast on for doing the toe, it's so neat and almost magical how twisting the yarn a certain way results in a row of stitches. Guess it's aptly named!
The yarn I used it called Jewel Box and is from The Laughing Yaffle. It's beautifully dyed and smells lovely as you're knitting it
I used a Sweet Tomato Heel for these socks which was quite straight-forward. I'm not sure if I'd use it again for multicoloured socks as I think the colour changes can highlight the slight unevenness of the stitches. For semi-solid or single coloured socks though it would be fab
I've thoroughly enjoyed making these socks and I'm really pleased with how they've turned out. My next pair, also in a Laughing Yaffle yarn are almost finished so I'll be able to share them next week.
