I knit these toe up as I wasn't sure how much length I would get out of the Jitterbug. I have heard it is kinda short on yardage. So I figure it is safer to do it this way.

I like the pattern. It worked out pretty well doing it toe up. I used the heel from the Wendy Johnson Toe-Up Feather and Fan socks. I found I like her double wrap. It closes up the holes that I can sometimes get with toe-up socks. So that is good.

I am pretty happy with these. Nice solid socks. Not earth shattering, but they will be good to wear.

Wanted a pattern that should be easy yet feature the yarn I had spun quite nicely. I found this pattern. It is an ideal fit.

The pattern allows for great customization. Yet it is only 2 rows, so it is super simple & quick. Definitely is showing off the striping of colors wonderfully.

Those are seriously nice socks. The pattern is going on my list, despite the fact that I read it - three times! as Bright rather than Brigit. *sigh* I need to do it in a Celtic color... (not kelly green)... moss? grey? think, think, think...
