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.

Superquail said...

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!
