Orange Conwy Socks

I decided to try my hand at making socks this fall and made my first pair with great success. After a long fall of knitting other items, I have finally gotten around to making a second pair with this beautiful orange Sockease yarn by Lion Brand. While it is a bit pricier per skein, there is more than enough to make a pair of long socks. This pair uses the Conwy pattern in Nancy Bush’s book Knitting on the Road. I did modify the toe shaping by decreasing only at the sides of the toe and then using a Kitchener stitch at the end to finish it off. I like the toe sitting flat without any stitches bunching in the middle.
