Toe Up Socks!

I finally got the heel done on the second sock. I pulled it out 4 times, and I still have a couple of mistakes. I guess that is how you learn though. Both socks are now in the home stretch...knitting the cuff. Since I used Wendy's basic pattern, it had just a plain stockinette cuff, so I am doing it in a 3/1 ribbing. I can't wait to wear them! The color is so nice and bright. I hate that I have the boo-boo's, but the next pair will be better. At least I didn't knit a million socks learning the technique, as I did when I first started learning to knit socks. I can knit cuff down socks with my eyes closed now, and I hope to be able to do the same with toe up soon.
