Socks on Tour

I finished a pair of toe up socks today, for Audrey to take on tour to local craft guilds, to promote my sock knitting workshop at the Creative Threads Conspiracy in October, 2012.

The finished socks.

The seamless toe starts with a figure eight cast-on.

The short row heel is easy to knit and fits well.
