11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what size needles for Koigu socks? on: May 09, 2006 11:18:08 AM
I suspect the answer is hidden somewhere on this site, but I'll be darned if I can find it. So can somebody take pity on a relative newbie & tell me, which size DPNs are best to knit socks with Koigu? I'm guessing 2 or 3, but not sure. I just bought some gorgeous yarn & want to start some 'traveling socks' (tm the Yarn Harlot) to take to the mountains next week, so I must be sure I get the right size, since I can't exactly run to my tool box & change sets, & I hate to pack 3 or 4 sets & have to keep up with them.

Much thanx in advance.

(insert demented laugh here  Cheesy)

I discovered these lil critters from an article in Knit1 magazine, got online to look for patterns, & well, just got abducted by them...I haven't really made up any of my own yet, but I have adapted some.

Here's one--the dragon is an adaptation of one of RubyTuesday's wonderful patterns--the cat is a free one I found online.

This kangaroo is believe it or not adapted from the same pattern whence came the dragon (hehe)

And where did they come from? The penguin you see below  Cheesy The giraffe came from the Annies Attic book How to Crochet Adaorable Amigurumi Animals. Their mischievous looking friend is adapted from Roxycraft's basic body pattern...he's supposed to be Clay Aiken, if you were wondering. (I've made about 15 of those for friends...every last one of em in a different outfit. Whew!)

These 3 are all Roxycraft patterns. The green monkey was a special request from my boss who collects monkeys. The bunny was an Easter gift for my niece, & the elephant was a baby gift for a friend's new grandson. (I think...unless he has bead eyes, then he's the one I made for myself. hehe)

These last ones are actually the first ones I made, both from free patterns. The cat actually came from a bear pattern, but I turned the pig's ears sideways & used them to make it catty.

So that's my zoo, for the moment...

Thanx & {{{hug}}} to RubyTuesday for her encouragement, & for not minding how I mangled her patterns.  Grin

no, not the kind you wear.  Cheesy I found this on the Lion yarn site.

He's amigurumi style, sort of. I guess he turned out ok, though to be honest I am a little underwhelmed. Maybe it's the yarn I grabbed from the stash. (note--don't try this with Classic Elite Sand. The texture may look like it would make a great teddy, but the hassle is not worth it)

Here he is: (click on pic to enlarge)
