[knitting] toe-up sock 從腳趾往上織






織圖 Pattern: 沒有,自己算尺寸亂織的~ (no pattern, just knit according to my size)
線材 Yarn: 小吉鋪的水果棒棒糖-夢幻桑梅 Nako Baby Lolipop-No. 80434 (bought from Jii Store)
用針 Needle: JIS #5(3.5mm
期間 Time: 2012.12.18-2012.12.22


之前織過一次襪子,是在製圖課上學的,當時因為不了解,所以拿了棉線來織,結果織出來的襪子鬆垮垮的(而且很大隻)。外加當時是從腳踝往下織,如果線量不太夠的話對心臟不太好呀!!這次剛好看到小吉鋪在賣這款壓克力線,正好符合我的要求-俗擱大碗,畢竟對一個沒啥織襪經驗的人,這才是重點吧!再加上是段染線,就算沒花樣也OK啦,初心者不需要太複雜的東西。
I knitted sock once several years ago when I was attending knitting class.  I don't know much about "knitting socks", so I use cotton yarn.  Of course, the sock is loose and big!  The way we learned is top-down, so, if you don't have enough yarn.......
Jii store is selling this yarn now, and I am excited with it.  It's cheap and big enough (100g / 230m).  As a beginner, I don't need expensive yarn with very good quality, this one is enough for me.  Furthermore, this yarn has so many colors, I don't have to worry about what pattern I should use.

這次採用從腳趾往上織的方式,我特地從YOUTUBE上找了影片來參考:
Here is the video clip I found on Youtube for toe-up casting on:

(如果你對後續的織法有興趣,影片還有part 2~part 4可以參考)
(If you are interested in the rest parts, there are also Part 2 ~ Part 4 you could find on Youtube. )


從腳趾起針的好處:
1. 不用縫腳趾的地方 (對我而言對針縫比1*1鬆緊編還難縫)
2. 可以邊織邊試穿 (這樣比較有動力!)
3. 對於線量的控制很方便
而且我是兩隻襪子一起織,這樣就不會一大一小,或是織好一隻就收工了的情況發生!
The advantages of toe-up casting on:
1. You don't need to sew the toe stitches. (It's really hard for me to sew it.  I think 1*1 ribbing sewing is much easier.)
2. You could try it even when you haven't finish it yet.  (It's a motivation for me)
3. A easy way to control your yarn.
I knit these two socks together this time, so I could get the same size pair ;-) , and I am sure that I could finish "one pair."


起完針後的部分,就是照著這本書的方法來做了:
After the casting on, I follow the steps in this book:


織到一半的樣子,很合腳喲~  Almost finished, it really fits me

完工啦~~ Finish!!!

有發現到嗎?兩邊的跑色是相反的喔~因為我只有一綑線,同時拉頭尾出來織,所以是相反的~而且因為這線很長,一雙襪子也只用了半綑多一點點而已~穿上去很合腳、很舒服、很溫暖喔~
Do you find that?  The color order is reverse because I knit from the tail and head of one skein yarn.  This pair of socks spent about 0.6 skein of yarn only!  Moreover, it really fits and make me feel comfortable & warm ♥
