Yesterday I finished knitting a new pair of stockings and I'm very pleased with them. They are a simple toe-up model, the pattern is my own and I used a common toe and gusset increase method, as well as a common heel option for toe up socks. The yarn is silk and merino wool blend and I knitted the stockings with needles that are maybe 1-1.5 in metric size.
|I chose to tie my garters above the knee because these stockings have tendency to droop and I don't see why my knees should be bare.|
|I knit the socks in the round with double pointed needles and that's why the change of round can be seen at the back and on the sole.|
