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
