Once you knit socks, especially the pretty patterned or striped ones (self-striping yarns), you may become addicted - even more so as you wear them because there are no seams to irritate your tender toes!!! The variety of yarns out there is endless. I'm partial to Paton's sock yarns, which wear well and wash easily. These are knit from the toe up using a Turkish Cast-On. If you do not already know how to do this wonderful technique, do an Internet search. Video instructions are abundant...or use whatever toe-up technique you like best. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round m1 - an increase of 1 stitch p2tog - purl 2 stitches together skp - slip one stitch, knit one stitch, pass the slipped stitch over the knit stitch - a decrease of 1 stitch sl1 - slip 1 stitch without working it.

I have been knitting for 60 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together! I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at with any of your questions or concerns. You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern. Thank you and happy knitting!
