I've made a lot of progress, mostly thanks to several long train rides. It's so nice to just sit and knit and look at the landscape outside. I turned the heel this weekend and I'm just plodding along with the foot at the moment. Long feet Tongue I haven't decided what kind of toe to use but I suspect I'll just do what I usually do. The toe in the pattern (D-Man) would mean no grafting and I *like* Kitchener stitch. It's one of my favourite parts to close up the toe nice and seamless =)

I'll try to post in progress pictures soon because I'm getting really lovely pooling in a swirling pattern from this sock yarn. Perfect! I wonder how sock number two will look.

Bwahahahaahhaa! I managed to get my hands on the Triton sock pattern, so I think I'll give that a go as my next ones. So. Frigging. Excited. Even if they're not toe up. Undecided

Woot! That's great Smiley Hmm... I think I need to stop knitting and drive to work. No fun Tongue

I've been busy with swaps and haven't started my socks yet, but one package is going out on Friday and the other one next week, so soon I'll be FREE! Smiley  Nearly sock time!

Looks like I'll be working on two different sock pairs at once. I want to get started on the Triton pattern, but I'm in the middle of making some fuzzy ridiculous socks with super bulky yarn. They seem silly right now, but they'll be awesome come winter. Pictures of my first pair coming up, really! Charging my camera battery, they'll be here soon.

I'm in.  I know I'm a little late joining but I need a project to work on while at the lake next week and this is perfect.  I've been meaning to start a new knitting project to do some stash busting.

I started crocheting my very first pair of socks on Friday, using this pattern.  So far I'm about half done with the first cuff, lol.  I'm a slow crocheter. Grin  My yarn is just some cheap 50% merino 25% bamboo 25% nylon blend I got at JoAnn, but I figure it's good enough for a first pair. Smiley

I've actually finished two pairs of socks, but I can't find my charger so I can't post pics Sad Argh!

So excited to post these. Are you ready? Are you ready?!



Okay, I'll be the first to admit they look a little weird. To be fair, this is only my second pair of socks I've ever completed. They're made for a dude, so I made them a little large on my feet, and I hope they'll fit him. The leg of the sock is super stretchy, which is why it looks so narrow in comparison to the foot and heel. I'm so glad they're done, I plan on giving them in October for the guy's birthday. He's knit at least one pair of socks himself, so even if they don't fit perfectly I think he'll wear and appreciate them.

Knit using Patons Kroy socks Jacquards, in the denim colorway. The label recommends size 3 needles, which is what I used. I love the looooong (40" in this case) addi Turbos; they're great for the two at a time toe up sock method. The pattern ("Simplicity") is from the toe up two at a time book. I hope you're inspired to finish and post yours! I'm excited to churn out my next pair and get it up here.

Oh, those are super cute and not bad at all! You can't tell that your new to sock knitting. You should see my first and second pair  Embarrassed I tried out socks with the worst pattern instructions EVER and it did not go well...Awesome job! I like the colors. I'm still stuck at only having a pair and a half done because I can't say no to swaps...Its horrible, I know. I still need to take pictures of my 1.5 pairs to post on here.
