I've never done short row, at all. I actually had a question for when to begin the heel. More Sensational Knitted Socks says to complete the foot and then start the short row heel...hang on I think she has instructions for provisional toe cast on...uno momento...are you using magic loop? (if not how many dpn are you using?) pm me your email and I'll scan the instructions to you. How many total sts are you needing for the sock, so I make sure I email you the right set of instructions.

I don't know if this what your suppose to do but I tend to knit to the last st/wrap and then put it on my instep needle...I knit the first instep st with the wrap to *hopefully* stop any holes...then I knit across the instep to the last st and put the last wrap on the other side on the instep needle...I do a ssk...so far it's worked ok and I Haven't seen big holes... I'm prolly wrong...


I had trouble on my Entrelac socks on where to start the heel... I think it's hard to decide going toe up... maybe once you get used to knitting socks toe up you can just tell...like I can with cuff down...

eta: ok in SKS she says if your doing a toe up short row heel continue the instep and sole until sock reaches anklebone...if your doing a toe up with heel flap she has "the heel flap is worked from the middle of the arch to the heel"

Lieke~Happy Early Birthday...I love the More sks book... I hadn't seen that sock yarn... I wonder if like in Tofutsies the sea would make it antibacterial?
Well, the ballband says it's antibacterial, so that's one thing it does. But since cotton alone isn't suitable for socks, I was wondering weather it does something else.

jberry, I am doing MagicLoop......one sock at a time, obviously, and it's worked on 56 stitches total, -- 28 for the heel and toe.
I thought I'd just ask for the info here, since others probably need it too !~

Those Sensational Socks books have been bragged on alot.......would love to add them to my little kntting library, too !

I wanted to wait until Wednesday to say Happy Birthday, too, Lieke, but I'm afraid I'll forget or have thunderstorms that keep me off the 'puter ! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY !

What great gifts you have in those books ! I've heard raves over the SeaCell, but I don't know if it makes cotton practical for socks or not. Maybe it gives them a little stretch, too !

Dear hubby found me an old postal scale at a garage sale.........it's little bitty, (you have to balance a rolled up sock on it), but it's still just enough help to let me know if I have enough yarn left to finish a second sock ! Atleast, it hasn't let me down yet....... I'd love to have a digital one...........but right now I've got a broken fridge to pay for fixing !
(We have a 1950's spare in the garage, that always saves our butts........not to mention our groceries !)

Jberry-your socks look great!
jamadian75-i love the blues in yours Very pretty!

I just got sks and am trying to decide what to knit first (once i can knit again). It's frustrating not even to be able to make a gauge swatch to help me decide.

I go for a physical therapy eval tomorrow and an EMG on Wed. oh to knit again....

Thanks Dustinac! This looks like a great group of sock addicts and I can't wait.

Plus maybe you guys can help motivate me to get past some serious SSS for the 5 pairs of socks I've got going. :D

My first Cookie A. sock. I love her patterns! This one is toe up with a figure 8 cast one, tis called twinkle toes.
Whole sock
Close up
This one is darker but it shows the color better. Picture 3

And the Breeze socks from Knitty.com (is someone else doing those?) Just one is finished.
Picture 1
Picture 2


Cookie A. Rhiannon
I just started this one yesterday and so far I'm loving it!
Rhiannon 1

Rhiannon and Breeze are both knit on Shibui Sock 100% superwash Merino yarn. Breeze is color 3115, blue-greenish and Rhiannon is 1765, pinkish. I LOVE this yarn for socks, it's fantastic and stretchy!
Twinkle toes is Lane Borgosesia Merinos Sei dark red Number 61.

I'm doing breeze. I've just found out they're originally knitted in cotton (that's what I'm knitting them in as well) and I've just finished the first one. I love the pattern! I'll post pics as soon as I have enough time.

Howdiee...

GJ~ I'll be thinking of you...let us know how it goes...

Kaylee~Those are really pretty...I love Cookie's patterns too...Twinkle toes has been on my list since the show... one of these day I'll catch up the to do list lol....When I finish the first sock...I really want to cast on to a new pattern so far I've talked myself into finishing them first...I think it would help me if I learned two at one time

Lieke~ I can't wait to see the photos!!

Sig~ I'd be getting tired too just a little bit...your almost there...short row heels I find I have holes on the purl side..but the knit side looks good...I have no idea what I'm doing differently lol...

ok so I've been sock browsing...although I really want to make the snowflake socks next... so I'm not sure why I have been...but I think I want to give illusion knitting a try...so I may give this pattern a try...but first I have to finisht that stole...

. . .
I'd be more than happy to 'share' the other instructions out of the book, however i've scanned them in and have no way of making the photo big enough to read them here, and it's way too much to type up-so if anyone needs short row heel instructions pm me your email and I'll send you the info. sorry I just don't have the ability to copy/paste them here.
for 56 sts it says... (provisional cast on for toe she calls it 'easy toe')
w/waste yarn and provisional co 12 sts purl 1 row w/ sock yarn.
work back and forth in st. st for 6 rows or until rectangle is aprox 1/2" high, ending on a purl row; the needle with these sts becomes needle 1. Unzip provisional co sts, place sts on spare nedle, beg knitting in round.
(this is where it's specific for 2 circs or ml)
with rs facing you, k12 continue with needle 1 pu and knit 2 sts from side edge
with needle 2 pu and knit 2 sts from side edge, k12 from co edge, pu and knit 2 sts from side edge
with needle 1 pu and knit 2 sts from side edge
complete rnd by knitting across rem sts on needle 1 and across needle 2
sts per needle are 16
work toe as follows:
rnd 1
needle 1: k1, m1, knit to last st, m1, k1
needle 2: k1, m1, knit to last st, m1, k1
rnd 2 knit around
repeat rnds 1 & 2 until 56 total sts rem
ta-dah! you're done!
hope that helps - like I said the other instructions are mainly for short row heel, but from my understanding would work well for short roe toes too-if you need those please pm me your email and I'll send you the attachment.
