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.)
