Trekking XXL #109 - Purple-Blues. Addi #0. 72 st. Toe up again with CH&T. This time tried the traditional toe increase instead of fan toe. I prefer the way the fan toe fits.
Very soft yarn. I wore these socks as soon as they were off the needles and there was no itchiness.
I'm doing socks two at a time but on separate sets of needles so they are done within a day or so of each other.
Have you noticed that the socks done Queen Kahuna style aren't as angled as socks done with a traditional heel flap picking up the stitches at the edge to start knitting in the round again. Not saying it's bad or good...just noticed the difference. I'd say that is the angle my legs/feet are most of the time...unless of course I'm standing up!
