Dustina I love THe Twisted Flower Sock and The Wedding Sock is fantastic. Lovely cardigan as well

Julie Good job on the CPH, have you decided wether you are doing the hood or collar.

Lisa your squares looks great, I have seen a few on the thread that is all one colour so I might attempt to make one.

Leike only frogged 8.5 inches have one repeat to go and I will be back to where I was.

Emily Love your photo's and lovely yarn what are you going to make with it all.

Jackie Hope Jayne feels better real soon

I really love the cable. Didn't know it was the same as the CPH. I'm almost done with the sock, so I'm sure I'll finish it tonight.

Karina, you're fast. I'm never able to knit 8.5 inch in just one day. If I'm lucky, I'll get about 1 inch done.

It helped that I ignored the children for a while and when DH came home from work he put the kids to bed. It did mean that it was nearly 10pm when they went to sleep. only 4 more school days till summer holidays begin.

Question: What method do you all use for color changes when knitting socks? I've been experimenting with some fair isle...

Get sheep, the will cut the grass, fertilizers the grass, give you wool for yarn, leather for gloves and lamp chops for dinner. Now if you could only teach them to shear themselves, card and sin the yarn this would be the perfect deal.

Jackie - I'm seem to remember that a cool oatmeal bath helps sooth the itches from Chicken Pox or just about any rash. Give Jayne all our love and best wishes.

Jess those skeins of yarn look great, I like the gentle colors.

Karina I haven't decided hood or collar yet, I still have 1.5 sleeves to go before I decide that. Hey fyi when you do the sleeves and are ready to start the increases you'll be ready to do row 3 of the celtic cable & it has to be increased every 8 rows so it works really well doing that cable on the sleeves b/c you'll do your increases on rows 3 & 11 every time. neat huh?!
I knit 6" on sleeve #1 last night and have since knit just over 3 celtic cable repeats...I think it's about 14" now.

I have 3 friends having babies, one due this month, one next and one in Nov. and would love to knit baby socks for each of them but not sure they'll need them, just the Nov baby will & that's baby #4 for them & the baby due this month is baby #1 & is the Nov. baby's cousin...confused yet? Anyway I feel like I can't make the Nov baby a pair without making the July baby a pair & the Aug baby's mommy knows how to knit but hasn't tried socks yet b/c I've told her they're addictive. Any ideas?

Oh boy, lots going on here.
Jackie hope Jayne is feeling better. Don't fret, you took her the doctor and she will get better. Your a good mom.
I love all the sock patterns, someday I will tackle something like that, right now I want to have fun with socks, easy street for me so I don't get discouraged again.
You sweater knitters rock, too. Such talent to just take off with a pattern, I take it, years of sock knitting got you to that level.
I would love to have sheep, but ducks were voted no, so I am sure sheep would be to.
My KP's order came today, I have not opened it yet. But I will.
I have sit and knit tonight, will take my socks and baby blanket to work on.
Hope everyone has a great evening, the weekend is just around the corner.

I can't remember who knit them. but I loved the little bootie that looked like a shoe with a sock in it. You can't possible have to many of those. They are too cute.
