Dustinac, those snowflake socks are amazing. An inspiration!
SteveDallas, I love the cables. I wanted to pick a cable pattern for my first pair of socks, but decided it was probably too much for me this time around.
So, tonight I tried to start making a toddler-size sock, with the seeded rib leg ribbing, from the "socks for the family" book. I think I'm finally getting the hang of working with 4 needles, but I'm not convinced I'm handling the yarn right when switching between needles. I ended up ripping it apart since only 1/3 of the "tube" had the expected ribbed pattern. I can go by the knitting shop tomorrow while my daughters are at dance to see what I'm doing wrong.
jberry, 10 days?! I hope they figure this out soon and your son recovers quickly!
