omg, you go girl! so do you think you would recomend doing both at once?

I had both sets of needles, and I know how I am (when I'm done, I'm done), so I thought this was the perfect remedy!  So far there doesn't seem to be a problem doing both at once.  In fact, the "easier" part is when I get to something hard (like the heel), I have to do both at once, and I don't forget how I did it.  Does that make sense?  Cheesy

I finished my socks last night and wore them to school today! Wool socks were a nice warm treat during the winter. And, hey - who can resist pink socks?

My socks look surprisingly nice, except for the laddering that they've got under the foot. Is there any way to fix laddering after the sock is done?

I want to knit another pair, but maybe with bigger needles and yarn. The ribbing on these took me forever because of the tiny sock yarn!

They look great, g.23paxilon!

I just posted mine here rachelo's socks by mistake (old habits and all).  I'm so happy to be finished with them!  Cheesy  Now on to the next project!

Woo hoo I finished the first!

I'm not happy with the grafting so I might take it out and redo it tonight, while waiting for a nice blizzard to start! Smiley



It is so soft and warm! I am HOOKED!

I started the ribbing of number two.

i just bought sock yarn and a set of needles and im getting ready to cast on. im  kinda terrified lol. I bought multicoloured yarn to help hide any mistakes i make. Does this stradagy actually work or am I making rainbow socks for no reason?

HELP! ive knit the sock down to the hell and everything was going jsut peachy. now the $%&@ has hit the fan. I'm having sooooooo much trouble shaping the damn heel flap. i followed the pattern to the tee. I purled when told to purl, knit when I was supposed to knit and I turned when the damn pattern told me to turn my work. the bloody thing looked like mangled dish cloth so I frogged the whole shaping section. Now i have a half knit heel flap on a sock thats i time out.

Does anyone know of any sock formulas out there? I tend to do better with formulas than with striaght forward patterns. its the non-conformist in me

There's a good sock formula on Knitty, but it's for toe-up socks.
 Here's another one. I've never used it, but it looks good and very adaptable.

I'll see how I feel when I get to the heel, haha ;P
