Zero Gravity Socks, Space Series Sock of the Month Overview header
Float Away on Toe-Up Socks …
Knit in Claudia's Soft and Airy Addiction Merino Fingering Yarn!
 
So what is the advantage of "Toe-Up"? If you knit socks toe-up, you never have to estimate the amount of yarn for each sock. Just keep knitting both socks until you run out of yarn! Amy knit the Zero Gravity socks out of Claudia Hand Painted Yarns' gorgeous Addiction fingering-weight merino.
Claudia Hand Painted Yarns Logo
by Amy Loberg
These striking socks feature inverted staghorn cables up the front and back of the leg flanked by handsome columns of eyelets. On either side is a column of stretchy ribbing to provide the entire leg a bit of give. The overall construction of the sock is remarkably traditional including ample gussets and a basic turned heel with slipped-stitch reinforment at the back of the heel.

Known both for her exceptional base yarns and the amazingly deep color saturation in her yarns, Claudia's flagship yarn is the fingering-weight merino called—appropriately enough—Addiction.

You'll understand why when you use it. This durable machine-washable merino has a nice, tight twist and holds up extremely well after multiple washings … even in socks. Add to that Claudia's diverse palette, and you've got the reason people go out of their way to work with her yarns.
