yup, the best way to make any knitted object less pointy ( mittens, socks, hats) is to have less plain knitted rows in between the decrease rows.

 for example, normally a pattern will have you do a descreasing row, followed by an all knitted, non-decresing row, and keep alternating until the end. sometimes that just makes it too pointy if the decrease is too gradually like that.

  sometimes it helps to decrease more significantly on the last few rows. Like , if it says, knit two together, then knit three together on the last row. let me know if that makes sense to you.

I know how you feel about losing your knit things. i'm a pro at losing things. its hard when you are wearing more than one knitted winter wear item, becuase if you ever go inside, you take them off, and therefore have the possibility to lose it! so far though, most knitted things i've lost have turned up, all except a hat I dropped in a huge mall, and had no idea which store I dropped it in. yikes! I hope you find it! also, I just LOVE irish hiking anything, especially the armwarmers.

 I also hate when people say something weird like " it looks like a cast". that's when you say "no, actually casts look like armwarmers! so there!" sometime people make connections  in their brain when they see someone wearing a fashion item that is not 100 percent mainstream. like if someone says that a certain pattern " looks like their grandma". cuase yeah, alot of things grandmas wear can acutally look awesome when they are updated and worn by a hip person, you know?

OH MY GOSH! THOSE FLOWERED SHEETS? I have the same ones! I found them at a garage sale in minnesota, and I use the pillow cases on my bed, but the sheets are to big for my bed, I'm saving them to use for the back of a quilt, becuase old sheets are so soft and perfect for quilts. weird.

 anyway, great job on your new clothing! how cool!

I agree with all that was said above! these are awesome! I have to admit, I get kinda bored with typical socks. it's nice to have something interesting to look at. I never thought about putting a " scene" into the leg of a sock. cool!

holy crap, did you do that by hand or did you use a knitting machine. that's nuts. I love it! did you make the pattern or get it from somewhere. so many questions!
