Alrighty, folks. For those that expressed interest and those who didn't but would still like to join, I present you with the KH Widdle Mini Sock Swap! :happydance:

Requirements of joining: Be a Knitting Help forum member. Other than that, all bets are off. Since the socks are so small they will hardly weigh anything. I bet I've sent and received letters that were heavier. :teehee: Because of that it shouldn't take more than one regular stamp to mail them. And because of that, this is an international swap! No need for post office hassle. No need for finding packaging or wrapping. Just stick a stamp on it and go! (Ok, ok, if you make a bigger size, you might need two stamps.)

Hesitant to join because you've never made socks before? Well, use this as a practice run! The point is certainly not to make perfect little socks; it's to be silly and have a quick and painless sock swap.


Signups will be open from March 11 (07) to March 23 (07).
Partners will be notified no later than March 26.
Socks should be mailed when done.
This swap will end on April 23 (07). That is 28 days of sock swapping goodness. Since they're so small, that should be plenty of time to get at least one sock done and mailed out. If you will not be able to complete your sock, let me know ASAP. Life happens, and things come up, so please don't feel bad about it. Just let me know so I can get it taken care of. :hug:

I encourage everyone to use a card, or a piece of paper, and put your name, KH name, and email address (and blog if you have one) in the envelope with your sock. Once you receive the envelope, I would very much like you to send your partner an email that you have gotten your socks. Or post on here. Or let me know. I will be keeping track of everyone who signs up and who has or hasn't gotten a sock. Again, I know life happens unexpectedly, but it sucks to wait and wonder.


Widdle Mini Sock Swap Questionnaire:

Copy/paste the following questionnaire into a PM to me.

1. Name (first and last)
2. Shipping address
3. Email address
4. Are you allergic to any fibers?
5. Color preference?
6. Would you like multiple swap partners? If so, how many max? (2, 3, 4, etc)
7. Are you willing to mail internationally?
(Color preference is only a suggestion. Please note there is nothing requiring you to use that color. For example, I have very limited colors where socks are concerned since I don't have many skeins of sock yarn. But, if I have a color my partner would prefer, I will use that.)

Once I have everyones information, I will be using spreadsheets and a random sequence generator to partner people up.
You can choose to remain a secret from your pal (if you want an anonymous email let me know and I will send you an invite from gmail), or let them know up front. Either way, I think we're going to have a LOT of fun!

Please use this pattern (http://yarnmiracle.gweezlebur.com/patterns/WeeTinySock.html) (fingering weight) or this one (http://www.geocities.com/jbtocker/patterns/minisock.html) (fingering or DK weight) as a guideline for the sock. If you want to pretty it up with fancy colors or stitches, be my guest! If you have questions, feel free to post here. I also suggest taking a look at Silver's Sock Class (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Intro.htm) (scroll down to the bottom) or Denise's Toe-up Sock Tutorial (http://www.socknitters.com/toe-up/index.htm).

If we were to pick multiple partners how many people approx would we be required to knit for :?eyebrow:

Friskums
03-10-2007, 02:24 PM
It depends on how many people want multiple partners. If you just want to have 2, for example, I'd pair you up with two other people who want more than one.

If there aren't enough people who want to do multiples, I will probably just drop it.

I know I'm interested in it, and Silver said she wouldn't mind, so there's two. :shrug:

03-10-2007, 03:18 PM
I would be interested but I may only be able to make 2 or 3 thats why I was worried we would be required to make tons more...to many projects so little time :teehee: :out: xxx

Nope, just whatever you want to do.


I was planning on using the little socks as keychains too. But, really, there's no "point" per se, to the swap. Just a little silly fun. :D

~danielle~

Friskums
03-19-2007, 01:10 AM
I'd only made one pair of (full size) sock before these. It took me about 3-4 hours for one.

I'd say, even with minimal time, you should be able to make one in a day. :thumbsup:

dustinac
03-19-2007, 08:20 AM
the first one I made I used kroy sock yarn and on size 0 dpns it took awhile lol.. the second one I made I used DK sock yarn... and I was done in a little over an hour I think... :teehee:

Jax3303
03-19-2007, 09:06 AM
I've done 2 so far. one with fingering weight sock yarn and size 000 dpn's. It's now on my keychain, and the other I knit with size 0 dpn's and fingering weight sock yarn and gave it to my best friend. each one took about an hour
to make.

I finished my second sock, yay (it only took me two episodes of Battlestar Gallactica this time :) ), but I broke one of my knitting needles while knitting the sock. :( Those silly wooden size 0 needles just snap like wittle twigs in my hands. I blame it on my local knitting shop not carrying metal dp's, and me not being used to such fragile and delicate needles either.

Good thing the set came with five, instead of the per norm of just four, so I can continue to knit. :)

Rennagayle
03-22-2007, 01:52 AM
Maybe if they all break you can just knit the teeny sock with toothpicks. :roflhard:

Seriously, I have metal dpns, but they're so long the ends :!!!: really get in my way when knitting something so tiny.

RiverDaughter
03-22-2007, 02:03 AM
Actually, the toothpicks are a size bigger than the knitting needles I'm using. They were too big to use as stitch holders. :o I think I'm just going to order a set of metal dpns online, it would be worth it. Not having my needles snap in my hands is ALWAYS worth it. :roflhard:

Ok, somehow I got allllll messed up. (I figured I'd screw up somewhere :doh : )

My original intent was to have 28 days of swapping fun. So, the due date should be April 23rd.

I am sending everyone an email correcting this.

Sorry! :oops: :oops:

No problem, Friskums. I was going to send off all of my socks on Monday, so either due date would have worked for me. :teehee:

But yay, yay for Wee Widdle Sockies!

They have intrigued my roommates into just staring at me oddly, as they can't wrap their heads around anything being made by humans that's that small. :roflhard:

Renagayle--thanks for posting the sock blocker link...

Can someone give me the dimensions of their sock??? I wanna see how mine is "measuring up" so to speak....:)

Rennagayle
03-24-2007, 09:19 PM
When I made my sock for the Wee Tiny Sock Swap, I completely forgot to take a picture of it before mailing it. :doh: I think it was a little over 2 inches high, though the foot part was only about a half inch or less high.

Friskums
03-24-2007, 10:10 PM
Mine are about 2 inches from toe to heel and then 2 from heel to top.
At the widest point, it's just under 1.5 inches, but for most of it its 1 inch wide.

RiverDaughter
03-27-2007, 08:37 PM
id yuo remember to turn the heel? I forgot, and had to frog a sock because I noticed that I hd forgotten to turn the heel. :oops:

kristinw
03-27-2007, 08:52 PM
I narrowed down where my problem is. This is right after the heel turn. I think I am putting too many stitches on needle 2. I really am confused by this part so I winged it.

"Arrange stitches so that the instep stitches are on a single needle and the remaining heel stitches are divided onto two needles."

RiverDaughter
03-28-2007, 03:19 AM
Yeah, that part is a little confusing. I always make sure I only add the same amount to each side when I pick up stitches, but my stitch arrangement is never like the instructions. But, as long as you decrease the right stitches properly, I use a p2tog myself, you should be fine. Just don't decrease too many. :happydance:

lestrella
03-28-2007, 11:04 AM
Hi! I made some samples yesterday. If you were my secret pal, which one do you like the best? Should I turn it into a keychain, a bookmark or a magnet?

#1 was made with knit pick sock yarn and size 0
#2 wildfoote luxery sock yarn and size 1
#3 was made with jojoland merino and cashmere and size 2
#4 was made with bunny hop sock yarn and size 3

kristinw, what kind of yarn and size needle are you using. Is yours as funny looking as my #4? I noticed that the thicker the yarn and the bigger the size of the needle the more funny looking they are.

Rennagayle
03-28-2007, 11:17 AM
Lestrella, they are all simply adorable. :heart:

CarmenIbanez
03-28-2007, 11:27 AM
Just so it doesn't get confusing, when it says to divide the stitches in half and put half on one needle and divide the other half over two needles, I just put half on one needle and half on the other. The other half just lays their while you work the heel anyway, less stuff to get in the way.

I AM ADDICTED TO MAKING THESE!!!

Rennagayle
03-28-2007, 11:33 AM
I AM ADDICTED TO MAKING THESE!!!

You know, after we've made more than enough of these to swap, create bookmarks, keychains, tree and package ornaments, and everything else we can think of, we'll finally have made enough, but we won't be tired of making them. We need to be on the hunt for a need for such teeny widdle socks. :??

I've got it! We can make kitty paw socks! :happydance: KH'ers can have the best adorned kitties in the land. Now, how to get kitty to let me actually put them on her feet. :nails: I'm afraid I'd end up looking like this... :ick: :rofl:

Kristin, I recently purchased the book titled Knit Baby Head & Toes (http://www.amazon.com/Knit-Baby-Head-Toes-Patterns/dp/1580174949) . If you click on my link and look at the book's cover, you'll see the tiny socks on the corner of the cover look much the same as yours. It's even more evident in the book's photograph of the page with the baby socks on it (not viewable at the link). Personally, I think they look really cute that way!

Mine are going out Monday. I'm not a very experienced sock knitter, and I know for a fact that my recipients are. I have made four socks, all of which I'm embarrassed to send out. :oops: I had made one and sent it out on a different sock swap that Emily held at Yarn Miracle (http://yarnmiracle.gweezlebur.com/). I was very pleased with how that little sock came out, so I don't quite know what went wrong with my sock knitting abilities. :roll:

Anyhoo, I finally produced one last nght that I'm happy with, so I'm quickly cranking out two more (I signed up for three), and they will go to the local PO on Monday! :happydance:

Some sort of cotton sport weight yarn, I can't remember the brand now. It;s completely washer and dryer safe, though you might want to tie it to a larger item so it doesn't get lost. :teehee:

It seems Carmen's quite the prankster, teasing me with private messages, leaving me to wonder at her identity. :nails:

Carmen made my teeny sock in Debbie Bliss 100% silk, and let me tell you, it is 100% soft. I have never seen or felt this yarn before, and now I can hardly wait to buy some. :drool:

It's such a soft sweet little sock that I already know what it's use will be. I'll pet it when I'm stressed. :teehee:

My socks that I sent out pale in comparison :pout:

thanks! It is KnitPicks Dancing. I think it is mostly cotton so it isn't the softest. but it was the only yarn I had wound that was thin enough. I'm glad you like it! :hug:

I recieved socks from one of my pals on Saturday!!! However, I forgot the package in DH's car :doh: so I can't look at who they're from....sorry. I *think* I remember the name, but I'm not sure, so I'll have to wait until DH comes home tonight to give spicific thanks to my pal. They're SOOOO CUTE and TEENY! I LOVE them!!!!!

I ran behind with mine, but told Friskums I'd be sending them out last Monday. My mom and her dh, who'd been traveling, dropped in for a visit on Sunday evening (a week ago). They spent the night (two nights, actually!), and I had no time to myself that Monday at all. I knew they were leaving on Tuesday morning, so my plans were to package my socks and take them to the PO then.

Tuesday morning, I got up sick...very very sick. :ick: I had a horrible headache, but couldn't hold any medicine down (or anything else). By 9:00 that night, I was writhing around in such pain that my dh insisted on taking me to the ER. Plus, I think I was beginning to get dehydrated. At 2:00 AM, they finally called my name! :gah: It was another hour after that before I saw a doctor. I spent the last hour or so before they called me back, lying on the ER waiting room floor, as I simply could not stand to sit another minute. Our hospital is the PITS! :!!!:

It was 6:00 AM before my dh and I left to go home. My poor, sweet hubby had sat up all night. I, at least, had spent the last four hours of our stay on a bed; and the last two hours of that wait was spent with mind numbing meds coursing through my veins. :passedout: Apparently, I had a flu or virus or something, but I also had some sort of infection, according to the bloodwork. That's the sickest I've been in many years. I only began to get back on my feet about Saturday night, and even then, I was wobbly.

I realize this sounds like I'm giving a sackful of excuses, and though sickness is an excuse, I know there's no excuse for my taking so long to get my packages mailed out before I got sick. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Bottom line, three lovely ladies will be getting their packages from me in the next couple of days. I did mail them all today. :star:

Aww, Renna! That's a heck of an ordeal! I'm glad you're feeling better. :muah: :hug: :muah:


And dustinac, yes, if you sent out two socks you should be getting two (one from two seperate people).

I almost forgot to post that I received my 3rd sock (and last) today, from Birdy. It's a delightful little mint green sock, which she designed herself. I am impressed! :inlove: It has teeny little vertical rows of cables around the leg. I wish I had a pair just like it, big enough to fit my feet!

Thank you, Birdy! :D

I will take a pic in the next day or so of my lovely cards and cute wittle bitty socks, and post here. :thumbsup:

I'm still behind. I have received my 3 socks and still need to mail mine out. We are having a "family" crisis with my brother-in-law and his ex-wife (They still love together though) and kids. I've got my hands full.

You'll get them, I promise.

I feel so horrible :(

That actually happend a number of times. We had about 20 people join, and some people wanted more than one pal, so no one got the same person twice, but some people got eachother. :teehee:

Two of my 3 socks are in the mail. One is going far far away (spain) so it will probably be next week before it arrives.

I hope to have the final sock out by the weekend *crosses her fingers*. I'm swamped. It's amazing how you feel like you're free and have loads of time on your hands and then all the sudden, something happens and everything falls apart! LOL no excuses though. But they are coming. thanks for being patient with me.

Oh, good. I'm glad my socks are arriving. I used Bernat Hot Sox. I wasn't crazy about it for socks that you wear (not that soft), but I loved the look of it's striping and bright colors. :D

Yep, if you mailed out three, you should be getting three.


Sorry guys... I haven't had a chance to go through and send out emails yet. :pout:

Ok, I sent out an email to everyone I have listed as still waiting on socks (but you may just not have posted here) so, if you are still waiting on a sock and don't get an email from me, let me know. I tried to keep pretty good records, but I'm not perfect. ;)

I'm having problems getting a response from 2 of the pals.

So, if anyone would like to make an emergency mini sock (or 2) it'd be great! Just send me a PM or email. :muah::hug:

I need one more person able to whip up a sock quickly (or maybe you have an extra somewhere) to send out one mini sock. Any takers?

Other than that, I think there are two more people I have to follow up with again, to make sure they're still on track. But I think that's it. :)

Thanks again to everyone for being such good sports about this swap. :muah:
