At last


The toe-up Regia socks are finally complete!

Yarn: Regia Silk 55/25/20 merino/polyamide/silk, colorway Nairobi.


Pattern: my own, cobbled together from a variety of sources. I used the cast on from Sandy Cushman’s Up-Down Spiral Sox fromFavorite Socks. I then made a lot more increases and knit a plain foot for about 50 rows. I borrowed Wendy Johnson’s short row heel from her Generic Toe-Up Sock pattern. Then I knitted even for another 45 rows or so, knit 15 rows of 2x2 rib, and finished with a lace bind-off.


They are shown here modeled by the lovely Aspen. (By strange and convenient coincidence, our feet are exactly the same size--makes checking fit easy as pie.)

That yarn sounds so luxurious!

It is! Aspen says she wore them home on the plane and they were super comfy.

Were they a gift for Aspen? It is wonderfully good luck that you two are feet twins.

They started out as socks for me, but their purpose changed--as you say, good luck indeed!

You are a very generous sock maker!
