Ever since joining Ravelry almost a year ago, I don't think I've posted a single knitted FO here on Craftster. I'm sorry Craftster! So please accept my apologies, with some SOCKS! (My newest knitting addiction)

The first pair I ever made, using the Yarn Harlot's basic sock recipe, and Mountain Colours Bearfoot in Lupine:

The next pair, made for my BF, using Austermann Step yarn and pattern:

And the most recent pair, Ampersands, made with Socks that Rock in Pixie Park:

Sorry there's only one foot in the last picture, I swear I did make a pair! Oh, and every single pair was made using the magic loop method. I am sooooo not a fan of dpns (had to finish the toe of the first pair on dpns after I broke a needle).

Sometime during the making of these socks I've accumulated a HUGE stash of sock yarn, and joined a sock club, so it's only getting bigger.... so expect more socks soon! Smiley

Thanks for looking! I'd be happy to answer any questions, and there's possibly more details on my ravelry project page for anyone who's a member there too.

Are all of these your designs or did you use a pattern?   I absolutely LOVE the last one that you made!  I would just die if I could get that pattern!

1boy1girl - It's using one super long circular needle to knit in the round at a small diameter. I used the video at knittinghelp.com to learn. (you have to scroll down a bit on the page)

chiqui - I did use pattens. The first pair is in the book Knitting Rules! by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (the yarn harlot) and is also available here except the one in the book you check your gauge first and plug in your own numbers. The book also explains *what* you are doing and *why* you are doing it, so that you understand sock construction. I *highly* recommend it (plus the Yarn Harlot has an awesome sense of humour, her books are hilarious).

The second pair is the pattern designed for the yarn I used (Austermann Step) and you can get the pdf of the pattern here.

And the last pair are called Ampersand, and you can get the pdf here.

pickled peppers - Thanks I'm going to go add you right now! Smiley
