What materials did you use? I used a self-patterning yarn - it does all the work. This pair was made with the moccasin toe and afterthought heel from the class with Donna Druchunas.

What are you most proud of? The moccasin toe is much easier than it looks. Getting both socks to look the same was my goal and even though I had to restart the second sock to use the proper part of the stripe repeat, I figured it out on my own.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take it slow and know that you can stop the video and return to it at any time. Stick with it.

Thank you. This yarn was fun because it is "self-patterning". It is called Knitcol by Adrifil.

Thanks so much. It was fun following the Craftsy class on Toe Up Socks. I learned a lot and can watch the class as often as needed. The yarn made the stripes and designs, super easy on my part.

Thanks Donna. You taught me to not be intimidated by making socks. I have even gone on to make two-at-a-time on one cir. Not sure I really liked that because it was fiddly.
