Women's Double-Strand Toe Up Socks Reviewed by Dottie Sartin on 2014-07-23 ***
I haven't knitted these socks yet, just received my yarn today. I love the toe up patterns and have been using them for some time now and was looking forward to making these for myself and my sister.
I ranked the pattern as a 3 since I haven't actually made the socks yet, but have gone over the instructions and they seem to be easily understood.

I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the yarn when I received it today. (Sock-Ease) It isn't nearly as soft to the touch as I thought it was going to be. I have been using another brand for socks and was hoping that this yarn would be as soft, however it isn't. I like a nice soft feel with any yarn that is against my skin and this yarn just isn't that soft.

I am still going to try knitting the socks and see how it works up, but am disappointed with the feel of it so far.

Folks seem to be confused here. If one skein is enough for a pair of socks, then you should need two skeins for the double stranded pair of socks, not four skeins. Makes the price a little more reasonable. I have not knitted the pattern but prefer the toe-up method.

Was reading pattern and noticed for 6.5 in wide foot. Small foot even for a women. So my comment is maybe 2 or 3 sizes ( mainly heel info ) need to be shown if you start with such a small size. As far as the price, looks like it would be a good stash project. no way it will take 4 skeins, so price should reflect options. Like the pattern. Hope to start soon and then will edit this review.

I have to say that I LOVE knitting socks and will try these toe up socks but I will be using a different yarn. I think $42 for a pair of socks is just a little outrageous!
