I finished the right sock. I'll try to take a photo after work today. Smiley

OMG!  what?  that was so quick.  I'm just starting the 4th repeat.  I've been doing one full repeat a night--it's coming!  It's looking a little dragon-scaly right now.

So, compared to what I just endured, I'll say that knitting this sock was a much easier task.

I did not consider, when starting this project, how difficult putting on a sock could be.  Until just now, when I tried to reach around my 7-month pregnant belly to find my foot.  After an act of embarrassing contortion, I managed to put it on and, after a second act of body twisting, managed to take the world's worst picture of the sock. 

My photo does not do this sock justice but I can assure you that this is one of the coolest socks ever.  The construction was unexpected and fun, though I know I made several mistakes. Luckily, I can't get a good enough photo to show off my mistakes so you'll just have to believe me.

Thanks! Thank goodness there was no one home though the animals seemed a little nonplussed. 

I can't wait to see your socks! Up to 5 repeats now?? I can't recall how many repeats there were before the heel.  Oh! Let me know how your heel goes.. I found mine turned out kind of large but I probably have a freakishly small heel or something.

So, I'm turning the heel right now.  Lapoli, you observed that the heel seems really wide, and I think it's because she has you do it all in stockinette.  There's no slipped stitches to tighten up the fabric, so it ends up wider than we're used to.

So, I have to admit that I'm not loving this sock!  I tried them on last night.  Using the size 1s made them a hair too small.  The lace pattern isn't very stretchy, so there's not a lot of rib action.  And, as you've said before, lapoli, the baggy heel really bothers me.  What to do?

May I jump in here, please??!  I am so determined to learn to knit a sock for my gun-boat feet, and have tried to knit up one a couple of times, with no success.  I will be picking up my dpn's again and soon!  I do not yet have Cookie's book, but would like to in the near future.  Could you tell me if there are some good basic and easier sock patterns in there?  The ones you've been showing and talking about seem amazing.  Would it be that much of a stretch to knit the ones from this book?  Any tips would be most helpful!  And I do love the yarn selections here, too!!  Happy knitting!

I think I'll join. Smiley I've been wanting to do Cookie A's Baudelaire, and the Pomatomus looks like good practice for Iron Knitter. Tongue

I think I'm going to get in on this train! I love Cookie A! I've made several pairs of her BFF Socks (a free pattern) and just LOVE them.  I'm currently working on a pair of Kai-Mei's and to be honest, I haven't been much motivated to work on them, so maybe seeing others working on their Cookie socks will give me a boost!
