I've actually been thinking about venturing into sock land lately! I have some knit picks sock yarn that is on it's way to me right now... I don't know if I want to try that toe up pattern or follow this sock tutorial that i've heard raves about: http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm.

Do you have any idea what size this pattern is for?  I was planning on making my first pair for my boyfriend but if this particular pattern is more for the average woman...i'll grab the other yarn and make them for myself  Wink

They don't list a size, however, unless you have above or below average ankle/calf size, going off their guidelines should be fine. If you are still hesitant, I would make a swatch in the round casting on the same number you would for a sock. Knit for a few inches or so. Then try it on your foot, and if feels fine, then keep knitting away on it, and make it your sock. If not, then you can always frog. However, their guidelines sound pretty accurate.

I wish I could join this KAL, as it certainly sounds like a lot of fun, but I've been in a sock craze recently and I've finished one pair and am working on two other pairs, including Jaywalkers, at the moment.

Have fun, and if you need any help, feel free to let me know!

I just printed out those instructions. I have the dpns and the yarn (KP Dancing which I bought last year!) so I think I will work on teaching myself this weekend. I need some small projects to work on to take with me places since I've been working on shawls lately.  I'll be joining y'all eventually!

I just got done casting on for the Sock Class pattern. I'm using some sport weight yarn in navy blue. I dont know what kind it is (got a ball winder during tax time and went a little crazy and now can't find the label but I know it's sport weight because it's the only thing I have in my stash thats not worsted weight. )

I used that tutorial for the worsted weight and it was such a great tutorial..there is one part in the print version (.pdf file) where there is a snippet out of order probably due to a random cut and paste.  She might have fixed it though.  It's a wonderful tutorial and I only had trouble trying to kitchener the toe, not because of her instructions but because I am lame.

Here is my report:
http://valleygrrl.typepad.com/knitting/2006/03/the_sock_chroni.html

I bought some more sock yarn so I am excited to do this pattern again with a lighter weight yarn.  This KAL is perfect.  Thanks for starting the thread Smiley
