yippie!!! I'm back home at my computer!
I got the cuff and part of the heel done on my sisters sock today, can't wait to finish it and start on dh's socks, or maybe mine...hummmm...
? for those of you who have made mens socks out of fingering weight yarn...the yarn I chose is self striping (pictures comming soon) what kind of ribbing have you done, for how long? and then should I continue the ribbing all the way down the cuff or just do straight st st?
Hope everyone had a great Saturday and enjoy your Sunday!

jberry glad you are back home and moving along on your sisters socks!!!


I'm starting slipper socks today for 2 people... I tell ya here I thought ohh no Christmas knitting and for some reason since this month started I'm doing Christmas knitting and it keeps growing...


I tend to like the ribbing carried down the foot... I have made both types for dh even though it wasn't finger weight... he likes the ribbing carried down too... I have made myself some self striped socks when I first started knitting and the ribbing was carried down and I like it... plus it breaks up the pattern a bit... it's prolly more on what your dh likes though...

Hi peoples !

Tried a different method for short rows yesterday and I liked it......no wrapping ! No picking up wraps !
http://www.knitlist.com/2002/ToeUpSock.htm
Also used this page,
http://cabezalana.blogspot.com/2007/04/sherman-short-row-sock-pictorial-tour.html
which made one or two little modifications, such as slipping the first stitch, on the way back up longer rows, rather than knitting it. I think that change made a tighter stitch on the side. You want to remember to pull that first stitch that you make every time, nice and snug, then go on across the row.

That's some kind of superwash that I got in a bag full of destash yarn from Etsy. I want to do the toes, heels and cuffs out of it....but.......I just found where I accidentally knitted 6 rounds before cabling, where all the other spaces are 5 rounds between cables. Don't know that anyone else would ever notice. I'm so wishy-washy lately, I don't know if I'll keep it or not ! I just enjoy the knitting, so it doesn't bother me if I rip and start again...........that way, I get to enjoy a skein multiple times .

Did you get any sales last night, Alex? I picked up a 'secret', and bought some earrings, all from the same person.

I made a bunch of progress on my socks. I am at the point of the heel on the first and just cast on for the second of the pair. I am waiting to do the heels until I am at the same point on the second to avoid SSS.

I posted a picture of the first on my blog.

Happy Birthday, BostonBecca !
You scored bigtime !

Thanks for sharing your day......sounds like fun !

Oh, my Gosh, I wish you hadn't eaten all of that CAKE ! I tried to squeeze just a meager piece through my screen, and I got an ERROR message ! Supply depleted !

I love the yarn you're using for your JayWalker....what I could see of it looks YUMMY !
