Has anyone done or considered the "over the knee stocking"? I've only seen the picture of it in the book, and I'd like to know if it's worth tracking down this book in my local library system just for this pattern.

I started to make them but i wasn't using the correct yarn gauge so i had to rip them out and wait until i get the proper yarn. if you use the right gauge yarn it seems like it would work fine i had no problems with the actual pattern.
i hope that made some sense i am half asleep...

I just finished the Log Cabin Socks. This is my first pair of socks EVER! I LOVE this pattern and found it very easy to follow. I used Caron Simply Soft in black so they're really squishy and cozy! I think I'll make some in "nicer" yarn for my in-laws as Christmas gifts.

Those socks are awesome!  were they a lot of trouble?  I've never done socks before either, but I'm kind of a cabling nut, and I would love to make cabled socks.

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

You can do it! It was challenging, but as long as you read the instructions thoroughly as you go it should be fine. I tend to read instructions over and over and over again while I'm working! Smiley

I only have dpns that came in sets of 4, so for the 5th one I used a dpn of a slightly smaller size, but that didn't seem to matter in the end product.

I've completed another project from the lovely bookthe Counterpane Accessory Pouch, using Caron Simply Soft.

Everytime I do a project (no matter what medium) I realize how much I need to work on my craftsmanship and finishing. Must learn to slow down in the end (I do well in the beginning, but by the end I want to finish!)

I'm still trying to decided whether to add a strap, my zipper wasn't long enough to act as one. Oh, and I also ended up dropping about 4 stitches on the first side I did, but didn't really know I did until I finished the second side properly.

I ended up starting both sides over once each. The stitch pattern is somewhat complicated, especially for an "advanced beginner" like me, but it wasn't a hard stitch pattern (if that make sense).

Bottles caps? Please!

Those socks and that purse are beautiful!  I just bought this book today so hopefully I will have some FOs soon.

I'm a little late to the party, but here's the Elf Cap from Handknit Holidays. A seriously speedy pattern, I literallyy finished it in an evening. I made extra-long i-cord ties to which I intend to add pom poms before it does to my brother's girlfriend for Christmas.

The yarn is Lamb's Pride Bulky - seriously soft stuff.
