Good luck!

Those look great!

I'm loving socks on two circular needles!

I've been busy since my original post.

I purchased "Sensational Socks" and "Socks Soar on Circular Needles".   I'm excited about both books.

I also tried my hand at Kool Aid dying.  I'm not thrilled with my results, but I will definitely try this again with different colours.  

Here's the results of my first attempt:

Thanks to all who offered suggestions!

84  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn winder? on: May 21, 2006 05:59:25 AM
I've been contemplating purchasing a yarn winder.  I already have one (my wonderful bf), but I'd really like one that doesn't always complain (he he he).

Any opinions? Is it worth the investment?

Wow...awesome projects.
Was the "all Canadian wool" you speak of for the sophie bag Briggs & Little?
Thanks for posting your pictures!

Pomatomus?Huh I looked a the link and giggled.  You are right, the actual knitting doesn't look very hard at all, but I'm not quite there yet.  But I've added it to my favourites and I really do like the pattern so maybe after a couple more projects I'll get there.  Thanks!!

The 3x1 ribbed socks are coming along....I'll post a picture when I get the first one done.

My problem is that I've been too timid to try to translate patterns.  I'll see an awesome pattern that was written for circular needles and immediately pass on it.  Last night, I was surfing a bit and realized...Hey!....I can very easily translate that to DPN's.   I'd consider myself to be an "experienced beginner" knitter and I'm really having fun learning more about knitting.  The replies to this post have really helped me a bunch.

I think that Craftster is an awesome forum, but it's the people on here who make it that way. 

Thanks all for helping me learn new things!

Thanks ladybug!

I've printed it out the pattern, I'll give it a go (it does look easy enough for me!)

munkymu & franciebrady - I started a pair last night, in 3x1 rib and i'll post the picture when I'm done (it may be a week or two)...Thanks!

JBoudreau - I just ordered "Sensational Knitted Socks"...should be here in a couple of days, I can't wait!

Thanks again folks!

Thanks to all who responded!

I'm thinking that maybe I'm not ready to graduate from basic knitted socks.  I've started and frogged two more attempts. 

munkymu - Thank you so much for your detailed instructions!  I have a feeling I will end up taking your advice (echoed by franciebrady).

I'll keep surfing for ideas, but I'm in the knitting mode, so I may knit another basic pair *sigh* while I do a bit more research.

Thanks again!

If anyone has any other suggestions...I'll keep checking back!

I apologize if I am repeating any previous posts, but I couldn't quite find the answer I'm looking for.

I've knitted three pairs of basic self-striping socks on DPN's and I absolutely love knitting them!

I started knitting a pair of Jaywalker socks last night, and after many hours and several inches of the cuff, it quickly became apparent that they wouldn't fit my chubby leg, so it got "frogged" *sigh*.

I have searched and searched for a slightly more complicated pattern to try (I mean slightly, nothing much harder than the Jaywalker pattern), and I've discovered a zillion patterns for toe-up socks and socks on circular needles, but nothing really like what I'm looking for.

Does anyone have any suggestions for something a bit more interesting than a basic sock pattern?

Should I bite the bullet and give in to toe-up socks? or socks on two circular needles? The problem is I really do like working with 5 DPNs.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated!!
