Satisfyingly Dull

Trekking socks
occasionally it's nice to work on something plain. 64 st Toe-up socks in Trekking XXL, #126, #1 addi turbos, knit one at a time using magic loop.

Started: March 1, Finished: March 13. my 5th finished pair of 2009.
Trekking socks
Cuffs are 9" with 3" of 1x1 ribbing. i initially tried techknitter's tubular bind-off but it wasn't stretchy enough, so i went with my regular ol' stretchy bind-off instead. i used the wrapped short-row heel and my regular toe.

  4. You gotta love socks for their mindlessness. Great tv/waiting room knitting. What kind og bind off do you use on your toe-up's? I think I tried the method you mentioned and it really didn't do much for me.
