Sharing the Sock Love

I'm such a smart @ss. I just had to meddle with the toe on the Austrian Diamond socks. I really enjoyed the way the pattern is incorporated into the cuff of these socks, and so I wanted to see if I could continue it on down into the toe. The original uses blocks of stockinette:


I wanted to put patterning right down to the toes.

The sock is still a little short, so I'll put these aside as a gift. I've cast on the second sock already, but I really don't want to fiddle with the first one any longer.

The sharing part of today's post is to spread a little link love to Doug the Soxophone Player. Go check out his spanking new blog. You'll love his socks and the way he makes them will have you thinking twice about your DPNs and circulars.

  1. Very nice! I find the allure of those little challenges is like the reason given for climbing a mountain: "because it's there." You know - just to see if it COULD be done.
