1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Heel-less Sleeping Socks from Nancy Bush on: March 16, 2008 02:43:46 PM

These socks are super fast and easy tube socks. This pair I actually switched out the knits for the purls (so I k3 p1, instead of p3 k1). If you are loving sock yarns, but don't want to mess around with heels and shaping and what if it's not the right size issues, this is a terrific sock. It is basically a very long, very skinny hat. So if you can knit a hat, you can knit this sock.
Pattern:Heel-less Sleeping Socks, from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn:UYC Ditto, Colorway Purple Cascades #4803
Needles:Addi Lace Turbo US Size 4, I think 48 inches
Circular Style:2 socks by Magic Loop.

Ok, so the pattern isn't ready yet, but I am working on it! And trying to do it in multiple sizes with not very many mistakes, so a few more days. Smiley

I am calling this tank "Liberal Bias". Overall I am pleased with how it came out, but there are a few things I would do differently if I did this again. First I would make the whole thing longer, it is a smidge short. I thought the cotton would grow slightly more than it actually did. And secondly I would put a purl ridge in for the rolled edge. But overall I think this came out pretty close to what I had in my mind.

This is the sketch I started with:

maybe you should fuzz out some of the numbers... Lips sealed

You really should edit the pics so the numbers don't show.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I need help with joining yarns.... on: March 03, 2007 08:28:14 PM
I think there is a turning row missing. I think you work color #1 ending on a purl row, then purl one more row in color #1, then switch to color #2 begining with a purl row, and work color #2 in stockinette.

Edit - I mean to say that the random purl row is actually the turning row.

I did some swatches to show you what I am talking about:

Top as you described it earlier, purl with the new color one row then begin stockinette with the new color.
Bottom as I described above, purl with the old color then begin stockinette with the new color, starting with a purl row.

After turning to make the flap

Is it going to be an evening formal wedding? If it is then that would be fine I think. If it isn't then I think there might be other problems besides the color.

Along with what other people have said:

1. Put a pillow or two in your lap to hold your work higher so you don't tweak your neck. If you rest your elbows on the pillow that helps too.

2. Try to keep your hands in a straight line with your wrists. If you have to, wear a rigid wrist brace while you knit.

3. If it hurts stop. You can get permament damage, which would be very bad.

If you wash the FO in a heavy agitation load like with just it and a pair of jeans that goes a long way to softening it. You are basically thrashing the heck out of it.
