One turned...

and the second one knitted to the ankle.

A couple of pictures to give an idea of how the heel and toe fit nicely on the foot,

Now I've knitted the fun part and just have the boring bit to do.
Not sure I like the toe up thing, though I sure like these socks, there is nothing to look forward to, no decreasing to make it end quickly.
Very happy with these, my first pair of toe up socks.
I think I will be casting on something else interesting before all that ribbing is finished for the legs!
Pattern -Albanian Anklets from 'Knitting Socks from around the world'.
Yarn mostly Bendigo Woollen mills Luxury and Cleckheaton Bambino Merino 4 ply.
Nice and soft, and very warm for when the temperatures drop.

Hope your week has been colourful so far.
Updating for the knit along with crafts from the Cwtch.

Coming along very nicely and looking gorgeous.

I always make sure I end my quilt binding with a short side for the same reason you like knitting socks top to bottom!

Certainly worth the boredom, they sit so nicely on the foot...and such a nice looking pattern...sounds like a plan, some thing else on the go to to break up the boredom of endless rib...

They are lovely!!! I actually do get excited with toe-up, because one the geel is done it's plain sailing from there and less chance of me mucking it up!!! :D
