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.
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. )
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！)
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."
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
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 ♥
