The socks are coming out sooooo soft with the mohair stuff! If you're not sure what to do with it, do that! Oh, and they're more like slippers now. I realized in the middle I didn't have enough yarn for socks. I had enough yarn for "sock."

Oh dear!  A single sock is not a good thing Tongue  I have a couple of quick questions for you.  Are you using dpns for the sock?  I was told that it is possible to use 2 circular needles instead of dpns for the same effect.  Do you know if that is true?

I think I'm going to buy more of the 'fall colors' (red, purple, green, yellow' funky fringe & make 2-3 scarves.  I'm trying to decide how much is enough.  I'm thinking 3 skeins per scarf should work.

As far as I know it's possible to use circs, but you have to use dpns for the toe area. I may be wrong, I actually don't know how to knit circular yet. I'm knitting them flat, kinda following the mary jane pattern I found on here (   http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12662.0  ) but I altered it a bit here and there. I'm not doing straps and I'm sewing farther up, and I'm knitting it entirely in rib stitch so that I don't have to bother with any increases or decreases and it will still look good. I've only got one mostly done, had some company over tonight so maybe I'll have a set in the next few days.

Right now I'm crocheting a scarf out of the rainbow colored acrylic yarn because I'm really clumsy at knitting. It's turning out pretty good.

I guess I'm the opposite Tongue  I sort of knit but can't crochet.  I have every intention of learning how to crochet because there are a few super cute crochet patterns for scarves in this forum!   Smiley

I'm trying to find a crochet teacher too! One of my husband's friends does, and I asked her to bring it along last time she was over, but I just ended up making my sock-thing and she just started a blanket. We don't really hang out enough to try and learn off of each other. Maybe I should just get a book. My MIL tried to show me but I think she realized she forgot how halfway into the lesson. She gave me all of her hooks and stuff though Smiley But then again do I really need another yarn addiction?

Absolutely!  Try not to think of it as a 'yarn addiction'.  Here's a positive reason to learn how to crochet - it'll help you work through your yarn stash and give you reasons to purchase yet more yarn Wink  I used to know how to crochet.  In fact, I remember making all kinds of pot holders, little sweaters for my dolls, etc.  Now that I've learned how to knit, I haven't an inkling on how to crochet!   Sad  BTW, any sign of the other sock?!?

Thank you! I'll look into that!

I'm not sure how but all my yarn has ended up in the kitchen over the past few days and I've come to realize how much I have Smiley I've bought SO much yarn recently and then I was given a basketful as a wedding present. My stash is just out of control right now. I have so much lovely yarn that I'm kinda schizophrenic about it and hesitate to start anything because I want to work with all of it all at once! I wish I had more needles. No sign of a second sock yet---I got distracted and started a pair of these really 80's looking fingerless gloves that had to be ripped out because I never bothered to actually measure my hand. It looked about right...
