Question from Loel,”For both of yunz:

You’ve knitted about a thousand pairs of socks between the two of you and me, being a bit of a Princess and the Pea with handknit socks (I mostly knit the bottoms with the stockinette side inside), would like to know how you weave in the ends of your socks? I’m not so much concerned about the cuff, but the toes and heels: Do you find along the decrease seam to be the least obtrusive? Or up and down on the top or bottom of the toe/heel?”
