Dustina, those flowers are really cute!

abbily, those sock look great. I love the color.

TheKnitter, you sock turned out great. I'm glad you're enjoying your yarn. Are they as soft on your feet as you would imagine after touching the yarn?

I joined sockmania as well, but didn't get my google-invite yet. Only the blog-invite. I hope to get it soon. I also did some knitting on my sock yesterday. Only 3 pattern-repeats to go and it's finished.

I promised a picture-update from my cardigan (although it isn't a sock) and here it is:

Carey love your sock, very nice colour as well

TK That is a great looking sock, and a perfect fit too.

dustinac Love the flowers on that sock, very cute

Lieke you are doing an amazing job on that cardigan, looks like a lot of work.

I was wondering if anybody have used trekking sock yarn. Get knitted is selling plain undyed Trekking yarn, 5 100g hanks for 20. which I think is a very good deal if the yarn is any good. Thought I would have a go at dying my own yarn for my attempt at making my son the flame socks. Also does anybody know what sort of dye you would use to get the best result. Thanks

Morning!

Dustina~The flower socks are very pretty. I've tried to crochet before, but my stitches get so tight, I end up fighting it more than anything.

Christine~ Great sock! Love the pattern and colors! Glad you had fun at your knit night.

Lieke~ Wow! The cardigan is beautful. I love the colors!

Rebecca~Those are very nice. Can't wait to see the pattern. Thanks for sharing it!

Welcome back Knitgal!

Hope everyone has a great day. on!

Well, it depends on how you see it. I love the process of knitting the sweater. It's so relaxing for me to use both my hands. So maybe you need a lot of patience, but for me it's just a lot of fun knitting this. One round is over 300 stitches, so it's a lot of work and a lot of fun. And I get the fun twice. I've got fun now, because I get to knit this sweater and when it's finally finished (I'm counting on next year ) I'll get to wear it.

Good Morning Socksters!!

Knitgal~ so good to see you posting!!

TK~I'm glad you had a good time at knit night

becka~Love them!!

Lieke~That is so pretty

Karina~My LYS just got trekking in not to long ago but I haven't bought any or tried it...I know it is used a lot and a common yarn you see on ravelry for socks...

Thanks everyone!! JD didn't really care for them..this is rare he usually makes a big fuss over my knitting...he has been kinda eek...he thinks they are on the gawdy side...told him I'm going to wear them with shorts this summer and dress shoes just for you

I'm the worst when it comes to patience...you can ask my family they will say YES she is like her dad ...and I always hear how do YOU have the patience to knit...to me it's I need something to make me think or challenge me...so I can get annoyed and get that extra push as I will not give up...the pattern will not beat me that is how I look at it and what gives me my knitting excitment...I also do that with easier patterns like the ST st wrap I just finished...I was bored to tears but again couldn't let the knitting universe win and me have UFO...I had to finish it...now if I could just get that to kick in with the CW shawl

My flowers are ready for the next sock...now just have to knit the sock ...I want to finish it before the April pattern comes out...

I hope you all have a great day of knitting

Yes they are as soft as they felt when I got the yarn. I love them. Thanks again so very much!

Your sweater is FABULOUS. My heavens woman that is a lot of knitting, 300 stitches per round. It is turning out so very well though and will be worth the work, I'm sure.

I tried to follow this tutorial, but ended up not quite doing it right... but I got it all straightened out in the end. It is a bit confusing!


Christine, Dustina and Rebecca, I love the socks!

Lieke, that cardi is beautiful!

I'm still a bit under the weather, but back at work... unfortunately I stayed up way too late last night so I'm fighting to stay awake at my desk today. Bad Carey! I was really hoping to get these socks done before the end of the month, but I'm not sure that's going to happen.

Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
