sock people...check this out!
Are these too cute or what?

The Mod Squad was here :thumbsup:

Those socks are wild! Are you going to make a pair Kemp?


kemp 06-13-2005 11:12 AM

I haven't decided...they are cute and would go quick, but would I actually ever wear them??? :??

Oh my god Kemp, those are ADORABLE! I feel like running downstairs and making a pair right now (esp since I'm stuck on what to make next). I think you might wear them... well I will try. They're kind of like jewelry or something, accessory that's the word I'm looking for, and cetainly an attention getter. But they just might be kind of comfy.
like when your feet are a little cold but not too cold

does that make sense? I'm going to go look at my stash....

Have you started yet??? :lol:

VictoiseC 06-13-2005 01:18 PM

Kemp! Help! I did run downstairs and get some yarn, now I'm back at my desk staring at these instructions...

I got the 60 stitches cast on, but geezzzz! what's with the instructions??? First they tell you what stockinette stitch is
(yes we know that) , in rounds K all sts.... yup then they say

Work rounds alt K1, P1

they don't mention putting the stitches on 4 needles, they don't mention joining them. Soooo, I assume if I join them I just ignore the k1, p1 and just knit the 6 rounds??

what what what why can't they just be exact in their instructions? or am I being dense ... :??

VictoiseC 06-13-2005 01:21 PM

ok, wait, I think they mean alt k1, p1, for the first 6 rounds just to create a ribbing? that sounds right doesn't it, I think from the picture I'm looking at I can see a bit of a rib at the top...

then you continue in stockinet....

that makes sense doesn't it?

I got the pattern from a German site...with all the cool sock yarns they have, the probably figure everyone knows the part about splitting up stitches, etc. :) (some kind of innate German knitting knowledge:) haha)

It looks like the part that goes around the middle of your foot is K1, P1 rib...then it switches to stockinette. Probably so it is a little more sung on the instep.

I am so excited you are doing this! :cheering:

Oh, duh, just thought of this. Let me translate :thumbsup:

CO 60 sts, divide evenly over your needles (20 on each if you work with 3 needles, 15 on each if you work with 4) Knitting in the round, work 6 rows of K1 P1 rib, then switch to stockinette stich for about 2 inches. ETC, ETC. Helpful? Not meant to be anything but...I have gotten much better at decyphering patterns lately.

yep, you got it. In the midst of my LOOOOONNNNNGGGGG post you figured it out :happydance: I did go ahead and convert cm to inches for you though :)

VictoiseC 06-13-2005 01:43 PM

ah ha, it's those germans! (my husband is from a german mum)

yeah yeah! I'm excited too! I needed something to do coz I've been staring at this beautiful dark brown yarn that I want to make a sweater out of but haven't figured out what pattern yet,

AND it's like 90 degrees here but my feet are cold AND

it's a quick little project (I hope) I cast on 60 stitches with some Reggia sock yarn I had, but then decided to do st prettier (alas no turquoise which is what I'd rather do) so ripped the 60 and did the cast on with some some lavender yarn for the top part, then maybe I'll switch to the multicolored reggia....

I think the middle size is good for me (shoe size 8) but I'm using size 2 needles and didn't check gauge so hoping for the best....

THANKS KEMP! WILL POST A PIC if I can do them...
