I just bought my yarn for this, but am currently knitting a body for my Marvin doll.  I plan to cast on for these soon though!  I'll be using White Buffalo yarn, in an olive green colour.  They'll be for my dad for Christmas.

I finished my first pair & am 3/4 finished with my second pair. I just got kinda sidetracked about posting!

Here is my first pair in Cascade 220 bluebell:

Before felting



And after felting:


Here is most of my second pair. I need a couple of more inches before the toe decreases:



I'm using Cascade 220 in chocolate with the leftover bluebell on the heels & at the toes.

Hopefully I will finish them up tonight!

worthwhilegirl:  those look super cute.  How did the cascade yarn work out for you?  The last project I felted using that yarn felted very nice...  a little more sturdy than the lamb's pride.

irid3sc3nt, I love felting with 220. The color choices are great & it felts up beautifully. I've only felted with lamb's pride once and it was good too. I'm not sure I can tell a difference as far as one being sturdier than another.

I just like the color choices of the 220 at my LYS.

Has anyone manage to convert these to flat knitting somehow? I SO want to make a half dozen pairs or so for a few people, and while I managed to finish mine over a weekend (pictures coming!) I don't think my enthusiasm will hold long enough to make that many.  HOWEVER.. I do have a knittig machine.. and if I could figure how to do these flat and just seam them up, I am sure I could knock them out in no time.

I just can't seem to get my head around how I'd do the gusset shaping on them... the rest of it is pretty straight forward. And because they're felted, the seams will completly vanish!

Also - if you were to try them on flats, where would you put the seam... down the top of the foot? or down the bottom along the sole of the foot?

Pictures are here!

Here's my fuzzy foot without the fuzz. I'm up to the heel turn on the other one now. What a fun knit. I'm making about 4 pairs of these for Xmas!

Hah, I went to visit family and I totally forgot to pack socks.   It made me wish I had a pair of these for myself!  Well,  I figure once I'm finished with my christmakah projects, I'll work on some for myself Wink

Everyone's are looking great.  I really like this pattern, it's pretty easy and a fast knit.

They were supposed to be for my mom but they don't fit. I'll make a new pair.  Cry
