This is great! I can't wait to see your tutorial for your toe-up heel. I spent the whole weekend struggling with adjusting the numbers to make a Widdershins heel, and finally got it, but whew! What an effort that was for me. But I am still something of a sock novice.


If I didn't comment on your previous cable-design post, let me say here that I'm impressed. Your skills at presenting this lesson are at least as strong as your knitting and designing.

I have no socks on my horizon and I'm terrified of designing anything, but I still enjoyed reading this. Thanks!


You never cease to amaze me! Another absolutely gorgeous sock! Can't wait to see the finished pair. :-)


This is a great tutorial and a lovely sock design. I bow in your general direction.

South I guess. I'm bowing south.


Thanks for the tutorial! I love the ribbing detail, and the sock itself looks beautiful.


Maia, thank you once again for putting these WONDERFUL tutorials together. They are so well done, and so detailed! A real asset that will be used over and over again by many in the community. Thank you so much!!

I blogged about them! :)


Wonderful!! All honor to you ! With this I will get more courage to start socks like this.... :)


What an excellent tutorial! Can't wait for the pattern!


Wow! I am so inspired!! I'm still working up to socks, but when I get them down I know where to come for an absolutely gorgeous pattern!


Wow! Thanks so much for these tutorials. I stumbled upon them when I was Googling to see if anyone had used the Tilting Ladders pattern for socks, as I have been thinking about using it myself.
I have not yet designed socks, but am starting to, so this is so helpful!
