Christmas Lights Socks
Pattern: Gusset Heel Basic Socks by Wendy D. Johnson from Socks from the Toe Up
Yarn: Sophie’s Toes in Christmas Lights
Needles: US 1 DPNs
Date started: 10/11/09

I love the zigzags in the foot.

The most challenging part of making these socks was using Judy’s Magic Cast On on DPNs. It’s rough for the first few rows. After that, though, piece of cake!

So now I’ve done two pairs of toe up socks. I liked Judy’s Magic Cast On more than the short row cast on. As for the heel, I’m not sure. I like both the gusset heel and the short row heel. I think I maybe like the way the short row heel looks a bit better, but I like knitting the gusset heel better.
