GJ, I'm in North Austin! I work downtown, but live off Braker Lane.

I don't get to go with DH much when he goes there, but maybe sometime if I can get off work (or during the summer) I can tag along and we can meet up!

One of the shawls was MIA for 5 months, and then suddenly showed back up! Of course, another one went MIA and hasn't shown up yet...

That would be wonderful!

Wonderful sox fibrenut. Way to go. Congrats! They look really good and oh so comfy. Great job. Perhaps one day I will progress to the point where I can make something other than plain sox.

O hun, this is an easy easy easy pattern, it's just knits n purls, no yo's no cables. It's on ravelry called "the Jacobean" by Julie Persinger. Just type either one of those into the search engine on ravelry and it should pop right up.
There were hundreds of ladies (and man) in the contest who had never ever done toe ups or short rows or ML and they all turned out just fine.

I`m still pretty much a sock virgin... well, not technically I guess since I`ve made two pair of socks now. I`ll stumble along in blissful plain-ness for a few more pair I think. Thanks for the info though. I`ll file it away on my to-do list.

TheKnitter, your red socks look really pretty! I hope I'm still in time for your question about the ribbing. Since you hate cascade fixations, you can't use elastic yarn. But why don't you knit some of that really thin elastic in the ribbing. It's rather difficult, because it's even more hugging than the fixations, but it does keep your socks up.

Dotty, I decided not to enter SKP2008 as well. I wouldn't be able to compete for the first sock anyway, since they already started. And I've got enough patterns I still want to knit, so I don't need 5 more patterns I HAVE to knit.

Dustinac, that SKP-sock looks really pretty.

Fibernut, your sock looks great as well.

Ok, I broke my non-knitting period yesterday. I was watching a movie and just HAD to knit. It was wonderful, although I was in pain the rest of yesterday. Now it feels as good as it was before I knitted, so I'm glad I did knit a bit yesterday. I put away my neverending socks, because there are some hard stitches in it, that hurt my wrist more than normal knits and purls. I'm working on some KAL socks of my dutch sockgroup and they are going really fast. I love the pattern, it's easy, but interesting. I'll show pics soon.

Lieke: I am so glad you feel better and got to knit a bit. Just take it easy though. No marathon knitting yet!
