This is SO adorable, I can't wait to make it........after my current 4 OTNs become FOs! LOL! I'm afraid it might be too advanced for me. Has anyone made this?

They're called Rainy Day Socks (http://magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/rainy.htm), I hope that means they are a fast knit.

I KNOW!!!!!!!!! :heart: :cheering: :heart:
I can't wait to hear from someone who has made them to see just HOW advanced it is. I have 4 OTN now, but as soon as I can I'll give it a try and see if I can handle it. The nice this is if you have a problem you can go to the LYS and ask them how to do it.

JJ, how did you like your new LYS? They have encouraged me to take in any hard projects to explain. They have a great book selection too. So does Barnes & Noble in the Woodlands, and it's right next to the Starbucks in the store, so I can grab and sit right away! I hinted to hubby about getting me a book on easy socks. ;) Ya! Like he's gonna remember that!

Just wanted you to know that I just started making socks on 3/9 and Rainy Day Socks are my 3rd pair. I didn't have any problems with the pattern once I figured out the picot edge cast on.

Go ahead give it a try!

PS Forgot to mention this is my first cuff down pair.

I finally have these OTN, started them while in the hospital with my mom last week. The Dr. loved them so much I gave her my pattern and had to stop until I could get home to reprint them :)

I've only started but I love them already. I wonder if I'll be able to cover them up with shoes once they are ready. LOL!

Did you figure out the top? I figure you leave the provisional caston until the end and then do the picot edge there. Is that what you came up with?

Chel, loved your blog, and those Rainy day socks look sooooooo great! Left a comment.

Also loved the clogs!

P.S. The Clapotis link on your sig is broken, can you fix that? It's due to the new forum, you have to search for it and re-link. I wonder what a Clapotis is!

I say go ahead and try them! :happydance: The lace isn't that hard (I started a pair but used too-thick yarn) and they'll go quickly on the large needles.

I just finished knitting them :) The picot bit is tricksy but the lace pattern is nice and simple. They are toasty warm. Be warned though they do come up small.

NO way! It looks like we used the exact same yarn! What is yours?

Ariel, I've been wanting to try these. Thanks for the encouragement. I love the picot edge on them and the lace pattern is gorgeous isn't it. I printed it a while ago, but have been kinda worried it would be difficult. I'm just beginning my Monkey Socks. Have you made those yet? Not hard at all! Love your ShiTzu, by the way. We have a little rescue Shi named Angus, and two other rescue dogs and three cats! Love animals! samm

:muah:Thanks for adopting! I work with rescues. God bless you!

The socks are eaaaaaaasy. At first I didn't get the edging, you k5 rows, then do 1 row of k1, yo. Then k5 more rows then you fold it over and k2tog. that's what gives you that great edge. Then just go on to the great pattern.

A four row repeat which after a while you don't even need to look at the pattern, you just tell because it's alternating yo's. So it's easy to tell whether the current row is yo, k1 or k1, yo.

Go for it!

i wonder if you could use short row heels and toes on these. i just learned them the other day and i don't think i will EVER go back to flap/gusset construction.

Arielluria

I don't know what you mean. Can you explain?
:whoosh:

i was just wondering if i could maybe do the heel with short rows instead of flap and gusset. looking at the design, i really think i could.

Arielluria

I just don't know what doing with short rows rather than flap / gusset means.
:whoosh:
Remember, this is only my 2nd sock.

But I'm sure you can do the heel any way you want.

Short row heels give a more "store bought" look to them. Some people find them easier, some people just view them as different. There are instructions Here: http://alison.knitsmiths.us/shortrow_tutorial.html

These socks are adorable!! May have to go on my "list of socks to make list"
