Q&A with maak

fcl asked:
Nice-looking socks -- the gussets look perfect! Which toe did you use?
maak answered:
Thank you! It's a wedge toe. I've found that my gussets are tidier on toe up socks because I don't pick up stitches like for cuff down socks.
ginochka asked:
Maak, I'm so impressed ith all of the socks you made. Gina
maak answered:
Thank you! I'm so glad I have the toe-up sock class here. I use it as my basic pattern, and then use parts of other patterns. So far I've done the wedge (pointy feet) and moccasin (duck feet) toes and the gusset (high instep) and afterthought (flat feet) heels. Next year I'm going to try the short row toes and heels. And then after that, I'll start working with my cuff down class.
