I'd love to join you guys but I can't afford the book. My public library doesn't carry it either. Sad I know you aren't supposed to but would someone be willing to share the pattern with me?

I have a bunch of vintage linens for trade. Looking for neat halloween fabrics, day of the dead stuff, star wars stuff.

If you look around at other library websites outside your area, sometimes you can get the librarians to do an interlibrary loan. For example, I live in Vancouver, and if the library in Vancouver doesn't have book x by JK, then I look at the North Vancouver Public library website and it turns out they have it, I can get the librarian to request it for me, or do it myself online through my library account. It takes a little while sometimes, but its worth it. And no plagirism karma Wink

Rougeau, your stockings look incredible!
has anybody made these whose legs are a little... bigger than most?
I'm a cycler, and I'm five foot one... that means I have bodybuilder-like legs!  I really really really love the look of these, but I'm not sure if they're for *me*.

I am working on these for the knitting olympics.  I am using Baby Ull in navy, light tan, and baby blue and knitting on size 3 needles.  I don't have big legs for my body but I do have proportionally bigger legs as I am 5'10 and so the 3's are working perfectly for me.  I am loving the way they are turning out so far.  I have a pic on my blog (haven't yet figured out how to upload an image here.)

Thanks for the comment, Beatnik Chik!

My legs aren't huge but I've been dancing for 16 yrs, so they're a little bigger than most.  I noticed that most people who've made these have gone down to size 1 or 2 needles. I used 3's for everything and they fit my legs fine, so I would think they would fit your legs too! Hope that helps  Smiley

I'm up for this one. I just got the book, and am waiting to finalize my color choice. I can't decide if I should go light or dark! I've seen too many nice ones done!
