Fancy Feet

It has been a while since I knit socks. The last socks I knit — actually, all of the socks I previously knit — were top down, knit on double-pointed needles. Then three events came together:
The result was a pair of toe-up socks, made from Patons Kroy Socks FX in Cascade Colors, knit on US1 (2.25mm) needles.

I am a convert to toe-up, Judy's Magic Cast-On and knitting socks on two circular needles. That is a lot of change in one pair of socks.

Just in time as the weather starts to cool down.

They look great!

I too just learned Judy's Magic Cast-on, from Wendy's book, and enjoyed knitting toe-up. But I'm still on dpns ...

They are truly beautiful!

Just out of curiosity, how long did it take to knit that pair of socks?
