  • I think I pre-ordered Wendy’s Socks from the Toe Up the day she previewed it on her blog. It’s wonderful and remains a reached-for reference. Looking forward to this Boost Your Knitting episode.

    • I just watched the video. Another outstanding tutorial. Thank you Jen!

  • Very excited for this month’s BYK project! I am a toe-up convert— I love being able to try them on as I knit to make sure it fits— but do like the extra room in the instep in a gusset.

  • Wow, I’m trying to absorb what I just saw in the toe-up sock video…..I’ll have to watch it again, no doubt…..as I get 110% lost listening to a pattern…..I need the written pattern…..I’ll see about hunting it up…..thanks you for your time and efforts, too! (((((((((( Happy New Year! ))))))))))

  • I just was contemplating whether I should try a new heal method on my latest socks… I was tired of short row… just tried this and I love it! Great learning on my last day of holiday break. THANK YOU!

  • Awesome heel method! I will watch the series. The Joan Rivers/Mr Rogers clip is wonderful and emotional. Two amazing people 🙂

  • I’m mainly a cuff-down sock knitter, but I’m trying to expand my horizons & do more toe-ups. I’ve only done short row heels on toe-ups, because I never liked the way the regular heel flap & gusset look when they’re upside down. I really like Wendy’s version & Jen’s video is excellent, just like all of hers are. I’d purchased the Boost series when you first offered it, so I’m off to download the pattern & try this technique.

  • Is it possible to get this intriguing sock pattern without buying the entire book which I’m not interested in?
