Any Sock KAL
Hi everyone, this is a general sock kal which means any sock pattern you are working on we want to know about it. We can share our wip/fos along with tips or different techniques you may use. I know we have a lot of sock knitters so I hope that many will join.

Right now I’m working on a Nancy Bush sock (which is where this idea come from) I’m hoping to move on to Twisted Flower next or maybe even the Bayerishe Sock.

I'm struggling to get motivated to finish my second sock to make a complete pair, so maybe this KAL is what I need! I've got about 3 inches of ribbing on the cuff done so far. I'm just using Silver's sock tutorial and some fantastic Memories yarn from Knit Picks.

Oooh! I have been wanting to try to knit socks! I bought some size 2 DPNs and sock yarn a couple of weeks ago... this KAL is what I need!

I wearing funky, fun colored socks! I really need to learn how to knit them!!! (My family always gives me socks for Christmas... maybe this year I will get them to give me sock yarn instead! )

I'm joining! I am making my first pair of socks with Silver's Sock Tutorial with beautiful hand dyed sock yarn that has teals, pinks and purples. I love it! I am knitting it on size 2 DPN's.

I am still knitting the cuff, but will hopefully soon be able to work on the heel. At least now I can have some motivation!

I'm in, I'm currently trying the 'Silver sock tutorial', but I'm really lousy. I can't get the rib to work, I've frogged the damm thing so often, still I won't let it beat me. Look forward to seeing what everyone is doing.

Ive finished a pair with Silvers tut....and Im one sock and halfway through my first patterned sock.

Although its a VERY easy patern...simple stockinette...no fancy patterns...

Im actually reading a book and using a pattern!


This is about how much of the 2nd one I have done. I will show a pic of the finished first when I take one.

Oh, I'm so glad you started this knitalong, dustinac !
I cannot get enough of seeing other people's sock-knitting, ........not to mention all the helpful hints !

I've finished 5 repeats of the cuff chart on the monkey socks.
http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PATTmonkey.html
This pattern is going really great, and easy to read from the chart........so much better than following the text. I'm using a wonderfully stretchy Chinese wool fingering weight yarn that I purchased on Etsy from BambooVillagePress. I've used two other skeins of this yarn, and have been very pleased.

Come on, IBAmyB, you sound like the perfect candidate for sock-knitting........you'll be creating all kinds of wild combinations once you get going ! And sock yarn for Christmas sounds fantastic to me !

Let us know what the problem is with that ribbing, NoBones,......maybe we can help !

I use this site for shrinking my photos to share here......it works for me ! http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/resize.php

I had to have a little photo assistance................(that's Ewe-nice helping me get a good shot !)

I've tried all kinds of ways on here, for posting pics, and the only things that work for me are using the link I posted above and making a small photo that I save to my computer, ..then I use the button that says 'manage attachments'...........or.........

I just copy and paste a link to my photos on flickr, into the text here !

It worked! Thank you Dotty!

Anyways, this is the hand dyed sock yarn I am using for my first pair of socks! Just wanted to share. Sorry about the bad lighting... it's not the best picture and you can't see the colors very well, but just what I had at the moment.
