Don't worry kid, I got more coming. February will be plenty busy.

Pattern: Double Gusset on Bottom Toe Up Sock by Carrie Ramirez
Yarn: Lion Brand Sock Ease Prints (I know, right?!) in the "Red Hots" colorway (Don't judge, it was $3 on clearance and I am a sucker for orange.)
Needle: US 1.5 (2.5mm), 2 16" Knit Picks Circulars
Size: 68 sts, which in retrospect is probably 4 too many. I used to knit myself 72 stitch socks. I'm not sure what happened there.
Started: November 23, 2014
Finished: January 31, 2015
I used Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy bind-off, and it performs exactly as advertised. Overall, I would say that this was definitely a "positive toe-up experience." I am not likely to become a full convert to toe-up socks, but my knitting pattern options just got a whole lot bigger.
