I will make a pair for myself with Cascade Fixation once these are finished. Mine, of course, will be RED! His are knit in a colourway called Seashore.
That is so sweet! What a great idea for Valentine's day.

jodstr2 & cinnamon_girl; your socks look beautiful! I've got to get moving. I only got about 1 more inch done last night--my knitting on these 3.5 needles is painfully slow. I have a hard time maintaining my tension, which wasn't a problem at all with the bulky yarn and huge needles I used on my first two projects. Maybe I should make my first pair of sock a Christmas stocking, instead of a toddler sock!

Well, I went and bought some yarn today, I was off work to take my Mom for a routine doctor visit and well... just happened to find myself in the yarn store. After all, it's not often that I'm home before 6pm and they close early most nights. So I went in and now I'll be juggling a new scarf in addition to my socks and other projects. Might not be having a finished pair real soon but the yarn is so pretty though!

Lisa1216... if you're still looking for washable wool. I used Moda Dea, a washable wool I found at AC Moore for socks. It's worsted weight so suited for around the house (or dorm) socks. I really liked it, very soft and squishy.

jodstr2... beautiful jaywalker's!! I love those colors.

Hope everyone else is doing well and getting those socks done.

Happy Knitting

Thanks ladies!
It is pretty but it's worsted weight and destined to become a scarf so I'll probably put my monkey sock on hold until I finish the scarf. I'm using size 10.5 us so it should go fast. It's cold here in Philly and I'm a bit short on wearbale scarves right now.

Hi Socksters,

Just wanted to pop in and say welcome to all the new people. Love all the great socks!

I really must work on the Pomatomus instead of the Hemlock this weekend. Maybe 5 rnds on the Pom and 5 rnds on the Hemlock.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. How about a SuperBowl Sockathon...work on your socks during the game?

Sock on,
Carla

The.Knitter, what a great surprise! Sounds like you're doing great!

I just bought size 2 40" circ from knitpicks, I'm going to try to switch my mirabella sock onto it and see if I can do it ML. I just taught myself ML to do some armwarmers for my best friend, and I LOVE it! The darn dpns get in my way on this pattern. I have tiny 1-stitch cables, and they're always right after/before a needle switch, which means the end of the previous/next needle is in my way... I don't know why I can't do them on ML, hopefully I'm right! What, you mean most people don't switch needles/techniques in the middle of their first sock?
