Tabi (split toe) Socks - What worked for me!

A friend of mine from Berkeley, where summers are frigid, asked me if I could knit her a pair of Japanese split-toe socks (Tabi) to wear with her Birkenstocks.

Turkish Sock Collection

All this talk of Anna Zilborg and Fancy Feet made me think of my neighbor's sock collection, which my friend Brenna and I photographed last winter.

Hemshin Sock

Hemshin is a region in Turkey’s E. Black Sea region. There are actually two Hemshins, one near Rize, and the other near the town of Hopa. (There’s a third one in Georgia as well).

Nemesis

This is maybe my favorite sock so far. There are lots of patterned socks out there but many of them are just a bit too feminine and I wanted something I could wear myself.

Mavi Ay Socks

So I decided I wanted to try toe-ups again, and with "real" sock yarn. A friend was coming from Germany, and I'd seen the Hundertwasser "Save the Seas" yarn from Opal.

Thuja variations

Thuja is a nice basic cuff-down sock, so if you want to try some simple variations, it's a great one to base your efforts on.

Hooray for Thujas!

I got into knitting after a friend, who was trying to quit smoking, started knitting scarves to keep her mind off of nicotine.
