No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

i started these with some stash yarn on size 2s because i wear a size 11 shoe and i figured it would help make the sock bigger, well it made the sock way too big, i need to get some yarn and work the socks on size 1's

Oh yeah...I bet they would be too big. The entrelac seems to make it really stretchy. Was your stash yarn too big though? How come you're getting new yarn? What are you thinking about getting? I love all the different yarn choices!!

I bought some sock yarn specifically for this project, I'm going to dye it with Kool Aid so it's all variegated like the ones in the magazine. I will get around to it, but at the time I keep picking up projects and not finishing them so I'm going to try to get some of those under control first. It'll be my first try at entrelac so I'm very excited. Eunny Jang just has a knack for making beautiful things.  Smiley

my stash yarn was between fingering and sport weight, it was just a generic acrylic i had, i just wanted to play with the pattern. I also tried using some rowan cashsoft 4 ply i had on size 2's and that came out huge too, so i guess i'm going to try again on 1's, i think i want to use knitpicks gloss maybe, i cant decide...

I'm going to be using KP dye-your-own superwash. I bought a couple skeins so I could experiment with colors, but I'm not quite sure what ones I'll use yet.

So, here are some pictures of where I'm at so far. It's not much yet, but I figured that I love looking at other people's pictures, so maybe someone wants to look at mine. The color of these pictures sucks. It makes it look like I'm knitting blue and yellow socks. arg. In real life, the "yellow" color resembles split pea soup, and the "blue" is mostly grey. You can't even notice that there is blue in it unless you hold it under a bright light. Okay...so that's my color disclaimer.



The yarn I'm using is only 3-ply (the vintage stuff that I found at the Mill End), but I was able to get gauge with it on the US #1's, so I figured I'd go with it. As you can see, it's a little bit "see through" because the yarn is so small, but I actually kind of like it. The only thing that bugs me a bit is that my first couple of tiers of the entrelac are a bit loose around the edges and it really shows with this yarn more than it would with something a bit thicker.




I am pretty stoked about that knitty Magic Cast-on because it made the seam in the sock really rounded and smooth. It fits well over my toes. I'm sure that the Middle East cast-on would have done the same thing, but those directions in the IK weren't working for me and I'm nothing without a tutorial!!




I'm pretty worried about this sock being long enough, after having read about other people's struggles with that. Most of what I have read has says that the sock is not fitting a size 7 foot. I'm 8.5, so I'm pretty sure that I'm going to have to throw in 7 CC tiers or so. I'm up to 3 now and it's not even fitting to the halfway point on my foot.



I've got a bunch of really subtle mistakes. You know, places where in the past I would have ripped this thing out a million times to make it perfect. However, in yoga we are working on how everything we do resembles life, and in my life...I never see anything perfect, so I am on a mission with these socks not to frogg them. Every project that I have ever done has been ripped out and repeated a million times and I am deciding with this one that it's harder and more challenging for me to keep going than to rip it out and re-do it. So, I'm up for the challenge and we'll see what happens. I know that the second sock is going to be better than the first. It wouldn't matter how many times I frogged the first one. Still, the second one would be better. So, I'm going to accept that and keep going. What mistakes I have now will not be noticeable to anyone but myself (and possibly those of you who are doing this KAL). I'm breathing through that. hehe. This is going to be amazing. I've only done 3 CC tiers so far, and I can already see a drastic improvement in my entrelac skills. The edges are getting tighter and more defined. The stitches are floating better. I kind of like that I will be able to look at these socks and see my progress and growth in entrelac.
