omly, those look so cool! I am still working on mine, I have one sock done, and am working on the leg. I lengthened the leg from 13 repeats to 20. Why I did this I'm not sure, 'cause by the time I reach the heel my head is about to explode. But I like how it looks.

Gosh this is a tricky one! Finally finished the first sock. Had some mishaps along the way but decided to ignore them (as some wise woman earlier pointed out... hey they're only for your feet...well my daughter's in my case). As far as I know, you can't get 2.5mm needles in the UK and I already have some 2.75 ones so I used those. Here is the lovely girl herself modelling the sock number one...MY FIRST SOCK. To those new at knitting socks my one piece of advice is "Don't drink and knit!"

80schick - I'm loving that sock...the colour is great and I particularly like the "kitchen counter top" photography. 

When you say "first sock", do you mean first one ever? If so, kudos to you!

Yes indeed this is my first ever sock.  As an item that's knit in one piece it's quite fun to see how it develops on the needles, but I thought that it was a real baptism by fire as a first attempt at sock knitting. I wouldn't recommend it if you haven't done socks before, I'd say go for something plain. This is my first knitalong too and I'm loving seeing all the results. Thanks for the kind words kinkyknit, and as for the counter top photography, I presented the sock to Njuguini after her science GCSE (end of high school) science exam, and in her euphoria at the exam being over she threw her foot up on to the table top and said 'here you go!' so there I went!!

I have to admit, I am really stumped about something.

This pattern calls for '1 set of 4 US #1/2.5mm double-point needles',  but US #1 needles are 2.25mm, not 2.5mm- so which part is the error? Did everyone use US 1 (2.25mm) or 2.5mm sized needles?

I tried this with Brown Sheep Cotton Fine, and could not get gauge for the life of me with 2.5mm, and I am wondering if its because I should have used US1's (2.25mm) instead.  Huh

Now I am thinking of using a different yarn, can any of you give me reccomendations for a good sub for Rowan 4ply that is superwash, and not too pricey?

My thoughts, maybe the designer used needed from Europe, and didn't know it.  As the #1 mm size does differ, if I'm not mistaken.  Knowing me, I would have to use 0's any ole way considering how loose I knit.  Just a thought.

Hi y'all, I emailed Cookie, and this is what she said:

Hi Emmie,

I actually used US size #1 2.25mm needles for Hedera.  Sorry about that!

-Cookie


Just so y'all know! It is a typo in the pattern.

Finito!




Ok, so I finished these several weeks ago, and they took much longer than they should have because I paused to work on other things. But I finally took pics of them. I think I will definately wear these when it gets cooler outside.

Those are really cool! I love the yarn you used. I'd like to make a pair of these in a mixed colour yarn. I have yet to complete the other sock (the constant nagging from their intended recipient is a motivation, AKA my daughter). I will get round to it but I have so many summer projects to complete before summer finally leaves us (in the UK currently this is closer than we think)
