Socks....snow and socks

 There was supposed to be buckets of snow here when I woke up this morning.  A new winter storm they said.  I woke up to about 2 inches of snow and delayed work.  That meant SOCKS!

Snow gives me another reason to pick up the Tuscany socks I am sllloooowwwwllyyyy working on.  My first toe up attempt at knitting socks.

They do resemble toes at this point and are a little roomy when I put them on my far so good.   I am not hating knitting socks toe up and did not really have any problems (not too bad) with the cast on, so I am pleased.

I am on Addi Turbo needles size US 1. I am using the Tuscany pattern from  Melissa Morgan-Oakes' book Toe Up 2-at-a-time sock book.  (highly recommend this book if you want to try toe up)
More coffee, a little puppy/kitty love and back to socks.  Oh, then a little spinning on some roving I purchased.  Off to take pics of those....lack of caffeine left me without pictures.
