He's pretty good about me buying yarn or books. I got a LITTLE upset with him the day before about buying Wii games. He just purchased 2 for himself. We went to look for ones the kids could play and all he wanted was his kind of games. He is truely a big kid at heart.

GJ.... You are the enabler... I bought more yarn.. This time I made sure I got some for DH.

knitgal... I just purchased some more sock yarn ... Thanks Gina for the site...



OK now on to a sock question... I am starting the toe. you have instep and bottom. What side do you put he ssk on? I just had a big air bubble in my brain....

[quote=knitgal;1078260]Hello all!
I also swatched for my first sweater- 3 times. I must be a loose knitter because the pattern calls for a size 5 and even on a 4 there were too many stitches per inch, so I'll have to go buy a 3 and try again.

If you have too many sts per inch, I think you need to go up a needle size or two. I think that's how it works, the smaller the needle the more spi, the larger then the fewer spi.

The way I remember it is that when you get to the last 3 sts on the needle you k2tog and then knit 1, and then when you start a needle you k1, ssk. make sense? You're (if doing with 2 circs or ML) gonna do one decrease on each 'end'. Hope that helped. sorry I wasn't on sooner, we had Ds's brother and wife over for dinner. So it would look like
instep k1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1
bottom of foot k1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1.
o and don't forget to knit a complete round inbetween the decrease rows.

Hi all,

I'm back again! Didn't make a lot of pictures, I was way to busy enjoying my short holiday. When I've made them smaller, I'll show you some. I also did a little bit of knitting. I had a 2 hour traintrip to and from the hotel, so I did some knitting in the train. I've got half the foot of my sock done.

Lisa, I don't think the cotton is the problem, because I use other fibers as well (just no wool, but f.e. the cascade fixations is really stretchy and I can't do continental with that for long either). I think I'm not practiced enough, but I don't want to either. It's great for 2-colour knitting, but nothing else, I love the throwing motion I have to make when knitting English.

Dustina, your skp2008 socks look great!

jberry, the room used to be expensive, but we booked it last minute, so it was not expensive at all. (not even half the price it used to be) They did have internet, but I don't have a laptop, so that was no use. (I'm only a student so can't afford expensive rooms)
I'd love to do a sockswap, as I just said, I don't have a lot of $$, but maybe you could work with different price ranges. You should also think about shipping costs, do you include that in the price or is that on top of the price you're going to pay?

Abbily, the socks I'm knitting are not totally the same as feather and fan, but it looks a lot like it.

Sue in canada, your socks look really great! That ar a LOT of socks (I should work faster )

Tangle, your sock looks great.

Indygirl, love your fixation socks.

Theknitter, your finished sock looks great. Did your sockyarn arrive yet?

ahkatelier, I love the colorfull socks you've made!

Hi there.
Thanks for the warm welcome to this exciting group of knitters!!! No crocuses yet. I've noticed a lot of singing from the birds though. The Boston Red Sox are well on their way in Spring training....and we've turned our clocks ahead. Ahhh,...the light at the end of the long, cold winter tunnel.
