Really cute. I love it when someone takes a pattern and changes it into something else. So many possibilities. one question though - how did you make the legs/feet? Thanks.

Thanks for the compliments everyone!  The legs are 6 stitch I-cord.  When the cords were long enough, I did k1 m1 accross the row to last stitch - k1. (11 stitches total).  Next row - P all stitches.  Then I put the last 7 stitches on a holder and made a mini icord with the first 4 stitches, bound off.  Then I picked up 3 stitches off the holder - mini icord, bound off.  And then once more with the last 4 stitches.

I hope that makes sense!

The body is Knitty's Kate Pattern.  The rest is all chicken!

Did you nuke the yarn in the microwave? If you did, did you leave it in the jars of koolaid or take it out and wrap it in film?? Still wating to give this a go.  Roll Eyes

I actually did the whole thing on the stove.  I mixed koolaid and water into four separate mason jars and then put all four jars into a big pot of water on the store.  I "cooked" it at a low/medium temperature.  I loosely followed the instructions in the knitpicks catalog (though I think they did use the microwave.)  There are instructions somewhere on the knitpicks.com site too.

Nice job!  They are definitely on my "to do" list!

Thanks everyone!

The pattern is Lichen Ribbed Socks from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. 

And no, they do not still smell like koolaid!  The yarn did for a while, but now that they've been knit up and worn, the smell has dissapated.

I am still competely stunned that this yarn came out self-striping.  A complete and very happy accident!

I received mine as a Christmas gift last year - and I wasn't even knitting then.  The calendar is single pages in a box, not like a typical wall calendar.

Thanks for the compliments!
