:D I have finished the pair of Sheri's Lace socks (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/cjsbirthdaysocks.jpg) for my sister's birthday & began the Cascading Leaves (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/cascadingleavesburgundysocks.jpg), also for her birthday...but they will be late :rollseyes: I did several gauge swatches Sun. evening & decided upon the size 1 addi's & I cast on & knit a few inches yesterday...this lovely pattern is going to take a while,well, let's just say they won't be done in a couple of days ;) Ahh, almost forgot...I'm using KnitPicks' Essential sock yarn (but I've already ordered Lang Jawoll in heather blue for another pair ;) )

Rebecca, have you finally converted to socks on circs??? ;)

Looking great, and I love the color. :thumbsup:

I like them, especially the colour! :inlove:

Very pretty! I just wish the lace socks I was/am working on would work out!

04-25-2006, 01:23 PM
Verrrrry pretty! It doesn't look easy.

I just love lacy socks! Much prettier than any spearfish I have ever seen!

:D Thanks everyone! KQ, yep, I'm loving :inlove: doing socks on circs..I actually began these on dpns, but quickly changed my mind ;)

Those are going to be lovely!! The pattern is gorgeous and you chose a great color!

:D Thanks so much, the color is actually darker than in the photo (I'm not the best digital photographer, much better with 35mm ;) )...These are taking quite a while, I thought that I may actually have them done for my sister's bday...but she will get one pair (Sheri's Lace) and one sock & have to wait for sock #2 :roflhard: :rofling: ....I have a great sister...she'll be cool with waiting ;)

I :heart: them!

:D Thanks!
Boy, these socks are taking forever to knit..I'm still on the 1st one!! Well, my not feeling well & going to my doc twice this week has a bit to do with it :rollseyes: AND, I'm running out of yarn...so, I had to order another ball...I'm going to be a few yards short, but I think the sock is going to look better with the long leg that I've knit (8"). I've also decided to keep them bc I won't be finished in time for my sister's bday & I will be much happier knitting her a quick scarf to go with her other socks. Or, I may yet give them to her...who knows?! They are quite lovely if I do say so myself ;) I'm off to see if I can finish up this sock before I cast on for her lacey scarf :D

:shock: OMGoodness, I must admit I didn't think I'd make it, but I finished a lovely pair of Cascading Leaves (pdf file) (http://f1.grp.yahoofs.com/v1/cGhbRNLyNES8BJj2nzFGC2PVuLKmE3uLPjRL6yuVYX2gxK-HZ9zvW_p22Wvf6UAlzK-qSHznNnc1o9j7SMTukF-whmFI7nz2hdkO/CascadingLeavesByJeanieTownsend.pdf) socks for my sister. They were a quick knit after I felt better!http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/th_cascadingleavesburgundy.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/2006%20a%20new%20year%20in%20KNITTING/cascadingleavesburgundy.jpg)

I can *so* totally relate Becka. I got so discouraged and frustrated with my lace socks from my Patons booklet, that I got mad and frogged it. I am reusing that yarn for a pair of Cascading Leaves too, and I'm just fixing a mistake in one needle... in the 4th repeat of the lace. I'm hoping to turn the heel at some point this weekend {which is actually my work week}.

Too bad about the sock, Becka--it's so gorgeous! Knitting should be fun though, and the Cascading Leaves socks look equally lovely!

Ahhhh, I love getting yarn, so I ordered a cone of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/th_DSCN1727.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/Yarn%20Porn%20and%20Other%20Goodies/DSCN1727.jpg) for Christmas things...or stuff for me I :heart: LOVE :inlove: ebay & Oregon Trail Yarn & Books (http://stores.ebay.com/Oregon-Trail-Yarn-and-Books) has EXCELLENT items & ships right away, I usually get my stuff in 3 days :thumbsup: This yarn was even faster! I think I will knit something for my sister to match the socks!

Way to go making yourself feel better, Becka!! :roflhard: :roflhard:

Way to go making yourself feel better, Becka!! :roflhard: :roflhard:

Yeah, baby...it worked wonders, too ;)

So sorry to hear about the socks. You're right though...it should be fun! I'm sure she'll like the others just as much. BTW, I couldn't get to the leaves pattern. An error came up when I tried to click the link.

05-06-2006, 03:00 PM
I wonder why u couldn't get it, Kemp....okay, the Cascading Leaves & several other very nice sock patterns can be found @ the Townsendsockknitalong (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TownsendSocksKnitALong/?yguid=221169500) on Yahoo; it's one of the yahoo groups. You should be able to get it there :D

I really like the Cascading Leaves pattern too! I agree, knitting should be fun -- there's no point in continuing with something you're not enjoying.

Nice yarn score too. I love Brown Sheep Co. Cotton Fleece -- yummy stuff! :inlove:
