Did anyone see this today? I am actually making socks right now with her "sock recipe" from the Knitting Rules book so it was fun to see how she actually made them. Like many of us I learned to make socks with Silver's tutorial, but I couldn't carry that big print out everywhere with me so when I saw this in the book I loved it! SOOOO easy!
Here's the pattern on DIY (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_5489009,00.html) for those who don't have the book.

I saw her. I have all of her books and Knitting Rules is easily one of the best handbooks I've ever seen. It's a little bit of everything and a lot bit entertaining! I also read her blog constantly. She did such an amazing job explaining socks. I already know how to make socks, too, but I watched because hey, it's the Harlot! ^_^ She's awesome. And she was so cute with her little Canadian self and the way she says 'about.' I'll bet it would have been a hoot to be one of the Knitsters in the studio that day. ^_^

The one yesterday (I think it may have been on home & garden, I record knitty gritty on dvr, so I'm not sure) with Cat Bordhi was AWESOME....check out this sock (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_dkng/episode/0,2046,DIY_18180_50494,00.html), it's one of Cat's socks that is made from an entirely new construction...I have GOT to get her new book!
I'm off to watch the Yarn Harlot now on the dvr!

They really need to offer this season as a DVD! I'd scoop it up in a heartbeat. I'm bummed I'm missing out on Cookie, Scout, and Stephanie. :verysad: Not having DIY is such a bummer!!!

Yes, I did see that! Pretty cool! I'm not sure how the garter stitch toe would hold up though.. :thinking:

I rarely think to watch the show, so I was pleasantly surprised to see who the guest was when I thought to turn on the tv. :cheering:

I've not had too much sock knitting experience yet, and I also learned using Silver's Sock tutorial (awesome!). It was so neat to see an actual demonstration.
