They look wonderful!!!

I had a message from the library to pick up a book.. but it was just the Folk Socks... they are still trying to get the other in... I should have just bought it but now feel like I should wait on them...

Oh, how I wish I could get the other Nancy Bush books through our library !

I never thought I would actually LIKE a heel flap, but this one gave me all kinds of ideas for future socks. I see alot of modifications in my future !:happydancing:

Feel free to knit ANY Nancy Bush pattern in this thread.........I'm definitely interested !

No, dustinac, I haven't seen that book yet.......but I've heard great things about all of her publishings !

I can't wait to see what you knit !

I'm really eyeballing the cycling socks from Knitting Vintage Socks........I've been so curious about knitting a pair of kneesocks,....I guess because I always had trouble finding any that were long enough to reach my knees when I was younger. At 49, I think they'd just be MY SECRET, now ! But they could be fun to wear under a long skirt this Fall !

I'm home lol... they called the day I was leaving to let me know it was in... no problem will grab the book when we head out... get to WV with sock yarn and plenty of it but no book...disappointed I go through mom's sock books (a lot of them for someone who doesn't knit socks :rofling and she has the book ... I started the Fancy silk socks and here is one done (she also has nifty sock blockers that I wanna order)... the other I'm still on the cuff... and she just ordered Knitting on the road book and More Sensational sock book so in late August I'll have plenty of knitting to do...

Those would be pretty... I thought of doing the Estonian ones out of her Folk socks book... but just not sure I'd wear a shock that high... could make them shorter...

That sock looks great ! I love that your mom buys all these sock-knitting books when she doesn't really knit socks ! Even better library to borrow from than you already had !

I looked through the Knitting Vintage Socks book last night, and didn't see anything I wanted to start, so I checked my patterns from online venues. I decided to give the Monkey pattern another go...........the first time I tried, I got past the heel and realized I didn't have enough yarn for two socks, so I frogged. It was REALLY hard to get it on past the heel, though. That yarn had no give, and the yarn I'm using now is nice and stretchy, but I'll still just have to wait and see when I get that far.

I'd love to have good sock blockers.........I think I want the plastic ones.........but they're fairly expensive for my budget.

Think I should start a separate thread for monkey makers ?

Thank you the other one is slow going... we decided to move rooms around this week lol... it is cutting into my knitting time :rofling:

I see ya started the Monkey post already I haven't made them yet either... I keep thinking my next sock will be Twisted Flower from Cookie A. or Bayerische sock....maybe we need Sock KAL

Mom got both books in and said they had a lot of pretty patterns...I know what you mean about the blockers I like them too but I think ohh more yarn instead

YES ! A general sock knit along, for any sock anyone is working on would be great.............you could pick up tips for all sorts of patterns !

Why don't you start it, since I have two going right now? I'll join in on it, too !

Have you been to the new chatroom yet? Everytime I've tried it (twice), it's been empty.
