Hello!

As the subject says, I would like to knit two socks at a time from the toe up. All the books and instructions I have found online are for knitting them cuff down.

Does anyone know of a book, pattern, or instructions for toe-up two-at-a time socks?

Thank you for any input.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Please help my newbie knitting self learn how to purl stitch! on: August 08, 2010 11:58:22 AM
I'm a crocheter turned knitter who knits continentally and just recently got comfortable with purling the correct way.

How I finally got it was by figuring out a way to hold the working yarn: I wrap it once around my pinkie and twice around the top section of my pointer finger.



This keeps it tight and easy to grab. I have to hold my purling yarn tighter than my knitting yarn, which may be the case with you, too, to help tight up your stitches a bit.

I had been purling the wrong way (by grabbing the working yarn so it was behind my needle), but that only meant that I had to knit through the back loop. I will probably continue to do it that way when I just do straight stockinette on something because it is soooo much easier to purl that way.

However, I started the Clapotis (which is the project in the picture), which meant I had to learn how to purl the right way because the Clapotis pattern makes you knit through both the front loop and the back loop, so the way I was used to knitting would have been too confusing for me.

Good luck and I hope this helps a bit.

I finished sewing all the borders. tTe final size is about 69" long x 57" wide and I love it. Thanks again to all the ladies who made me these wonderful blocks!

Now, what is happening with your blocks???

I'm making some progress on my quilt. The borders are looking great and thought it would be nice to share:



I'll just be doing the flying geese, then another round of white fabric. I'll bind it with something colorful and I can't wait to see it done!!!
8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Mini Art Quilt Swap 3 (Sign-ups until July 15, Sendouts Sept 7) on: July 03, 2010 07:59:57 AM
Oh my gosh - I love this swap, but I don't know if it would be wise of me to join this round. I just moved to a new city, got no job, got no place of my own, but I've got my sewing machine and my stash readily available. I went fabric shopping yesterday, too, so I will think about joining this round and I probably will.

After thought:

I've been thinking about it and I will not be joining this round. If you were to check out my UFO List, you would understand why. I just gotta get focused on what I want to get done that I've already started instead of adding yet another (albeit very fun) project. If I have things under control when Round 4 happens, I will definitely sign up.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone makes, though! Cheesy
