I finished one Pomatomus before I started my Sockatine Sock Swap socks, and still need to finish the pair. So what did I do? I cast on for another Pomatomus in a totally different yarn

Pair 1 will be knit from STR lightweight in Jasper:



Pair 2 will be knit from Koigu KPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPM in a blue colorway:




I adore this pattern!

Can I join in????

I've got some Regia sock yarn in Denim - I'll just go check it's weight and yardage to see if I've got enough!

Ok - I've got two 50g balls - each with 200m
The gauge on the balls says 7.5 sts per inch on size 2-3 needles

So I think I'm set - I should have enough yarn and I think my size 2.5 needles should do - and they're in a set of 5 so

I'll try and cast on today sometime.

I'm joining in too, of course!!!

Amanda, thanks for setting up the KAL. I'm still wondering if I want to use the Mars Quake for it or not. I might use a different yarn.

For some reason, that Mars Quake keeps "screaming" for me to turn it into a lacy item near my face. I just can't get enough of that Lisa Souza softness!!!

I have lots of other sock yarn to choose from: 3 different colors of Wildfoote, several skeins of Knit Picks Palette, and some laceweight merino as well. Decisions, decisions!

Ooh, ooh, me!

I'm leaning towards the Austerman...

I'm knitting them for my mom (for her birthday, she doesn't know), so I'd like to join as well. I'm doing the first patten-repeat, and so far I don't know wether I like it with the variegated yarn I'm using, so maybe the'll be frogged later and knitted with other yarn. I'll post pics next monday, because mom isn't home and I'll be able to make pics without being afraid she'll find out what I'm knitting.

I would join if I could knit from charts.
