There's nothing like a pair of handknit socks. You can use gorgeous sock yarn, choose your stitch pattern, and take them with you wherever you go. One thing I've learned over the years is how to customize socks to fit my feet, and I like a rounded toe. It's important for me because my feet are fairly straight across the toes, and a pointy toe just ends up flopping around empty.
Kelley likes a rounded toe, too, and she's developed a recipe for making them for her toe-up socks. She creates her rounded toe by spreading out the increases, separating them with a growing number of knit rounds in-between.
