Isn't it hard to decide which ones to do next?!?! I have so many that I want to make but which to do first.

I'm still working on my Jaywalkers but have been thinking about the next pair already. DS wants a blue & white striped (future school colors) pair of no show socks so I bought the yarn for that. I figure that will be quick & boring but I'm waiting for the book Favorite Socks from my LYS. I want to make them with the padded ankle sock pattern.

Then I also bought some solid purple for another pair. Cant decide if I want to try these or not. http://www.eunnyjang.com/knit/2006/0...k_part_ii.html I just think they are beautiful but I dont care for charts.

I know most of you probably have these sock sites as your favorites already but wanted to post them for the new socknitters.

http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/

There are so many free patterns on-line that I have a 3" binder packed full and another started.

Knitwit~ it looks wonderful!!! I love those colors too... Good job!!

1to1~ ohh thanks I didn't know interweave had put those patterns up..I'm the same way... I want to knit the Eunny socks too and that was going to be my next pair (or twisted flower) but some how I ended up with Victorian Lace on my needles...it is from the yahoo group Six Sox KAL... I think Eunny's will be next though... I need to read up on cabling with out a cable needle... I also like the penny sock too... to many choices...

dustinac, OHHH another pretty one to add to my toe-up binder. I love that little guy.

I visit the Six Sox KAL too. I haven't made the VL--too many others that I want to do first. I like joining the Yahoo Sock Groups but they just don't have the volume as Amy does here.

Beautiful job, knitwit ! Love that yarn choice, too !
I went back to my kneesock that I left to do the Monkeys.........and I was totally lost. I tried to work in some changes, and wasn't happy with how the purl stitches looked in the striped yarn, so I frogged it.

I love the looks of that Eunny sock, but I don't understand the chart............those symbols are new to me, and I didn't see a key to explain them. Sometimes I wish that all knitting symbols were universal. But at the very least, I must have a key !

Working on 1st pair of socks.
Hiya,

I took a sock class about last winter, and am still working on finishing my first pair. I am going to try to finish within the next week or so. I don't have a lot of time to knit, and I'm struggling with turning the heel, but this will give me the kick in the pants I need to get it done!!

I'm finishing up the ribbing on my first pair of socks and am on the lookout for a good second pair--yarn and pattern. The first pair is made with Online Supersocke, but it's not the softest yarn. It sort of bothers my hands to knit with after awhile of knitting.
Any suggestions for nice (not too $$$) sock yarn?

dotty~ sorry the other pair wasn't working out... The link below takes you to part 2 of Eunny's patter.. here is part one with the code...I'll prolly color code mine so I won't have to keep fighting with the chart...

bunnychick~ Welcome!!!

GJ~ Knitpicks is a great place for sock yarn...I have tried several and they are soft... I didn't like dancing though ... I like cherry tree hill very soft... Patons Kroy isn't bad...
