Kelly I had to check the date... I can't believe that's your first sock?
I thought I complimented you a long time ago on a sock that had a nice rounded toe, maybe that was the clog though. Anyhow, it's gorgeous & so intricate with all those colours! I always make socks on size 3. You'll find it a lot easier going on 3s. And you might want to try that really neat method of doing 2 socks together..... it's interesting. Not on 2 circulars (I haven't dared go there yet) but you know, knit the body of one, then the other, then the heel flap, then the other etc.

I'm just finishing my blue socks, first pair that is 'normal'. Cleckheaton is really nice sock yarn.... but that sounds neat about the stuff in the yarn, aloe, to keep your hand soft.

I love my Sock Book, I'm going to do every sock in there.

Oh, I ripped these toes out twice coz I hated the pointy ends. As you do more socks you finally do it the way you want it and not the way they say to.

Here's a pic. If I could just get around to sewing them up.

Those look GREAT, Vic!

If I ever decide that Im going to become "one of those SOCK PEOPLE", then I suppose I will invest in second sets of DPNS so I can do them both at once.

That cleakheaton looks like a REASONABLE weight! Is it sport or DK?

I didnt want to do THESE socks on 3's....its pretty thin. I wanted fairly dense socks.

ha ha sport or DK! I dunno! I have a confession to make, I never learned those ... thingys. Um, I think it's DK? I'ts not light and thin, nice and nubby and strong. Will let you know when I find out but Cleckheaton is really nice yarn, the heathery colors and all...

thanks!!!

edit: just found out it's DK. They have their own website Cleckheaton. Really nice yarns.

OMG!!! The pattern is exact!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've done sweaters for 14" dolls with sock yarn and have unrolled the ball to try to get the sleeves to match. Can't say I was altogether successful.

I have never been inspired to make socks 'til I got on this board. I just love the enthusiasm and support here!

Now that I have been able to wrap my mind around two socks on two circular needles, I'll have to see if I can wrap my hands around the concept.
Knitting with 6 thumbs and 5 needles is difficult for me. :rollseyes:

Beautiful job, Kelley!

Lana.....my "trick" was to tie the slip knot for the CO right at the point where two colors meet.

Are you SURE Kelly's not holding a mirror between her knees?

Beauteous job! Can't wait to finish my first (and second!) sock, but alas I'm using Patons Kroy in the FINGERING weight...ack! Next time I know...look for the DK sock yarns! LOL
