Anybody started these yet? I'm new to entrelac, so I'm pretty excited. I am working through the tutorial in the Spring Interweave Knits that comes before the pattern.
I am also doing the KAL: www.entrelacsocks.blogspot.com

I finished the entrelac on straight needles swatch and I'm going to work the one in the round this afternoon and then start the socks either tonight or tomorrow. I am going to Brietenbush Hot Springs on sunday too, so I think I will be sitting on the porch in the woods knitting up some entrelac socks between soaking.

I definitely cannot afford the koigu yarn, so I got some fingering wool from a local place here. I saw a woman online who had posted pictures of the first couple inches she had and they looked great. She was using knitpicks gloss, which I think was a good choice.

I got hooked on entrelac with Lady E. Then I saw these and I WANT!!!! I agree the yarn is pricey so I'm searching for a sub that also comes in the colors I want.

I'll join in when I have the yarn in hand!

I have the yarn (a couple of different brands), I have the motivation, but I also already have upwards of a dozen WIPs. I have vowed to finish at least 3 of those WIPs before I start anything else, no matter how small (like, for example, an entrelac swatch that would double as an iPod case) or how gorgeously clever.

My website is coming together nicely! Please send me feedback, as I don't know how well it works on systems other than mine.

Also, I have a blog at  http://neglectedblog.blogspot.com/

I have yet to receive my Spring issue of IK! I've been visiting and revisiting the IK website simply to drool over those gorgeous socks...

I want!!! [insert juvenile tantrum here]

As soon as I get my issue, I should be joining this kal. Hopefully, you girls won't be done with the socks already by then  Wink

I just cast these on last night. Not that I got too far, but I just had to jump in there. I used the knitty magic cast on, rather than the middle east cast on, cause I didn't find a nice tutorial for it till today. I guess the MECO is also called "Figure 8". Hello yarn has a great tutorial for that if anyone needs it.

fragolina_piccolina: i seriously doubt we will be done by the time you get your mag!! that sucks. i have a couple of friends who are still waiting on theirs too.

juniperl: I know. These socks have been a major motivating factor in my life. They got me to finish 3 projects that have been sitting around forever because I wanted to knit them with a clear-project heart! LOL. You are a fab knitter and I would love to see what you come up with if you ever decide to do it though!

disco: sounds great! lemme know what you pick. i know a woman in texas that wants to join, but she's scared of using wool cause she thinks it'll be too hot. she was looking around for a plant fiber substitute but hasn't found anything really affordable. most people i know are doing them in palette (knitpicks) i guess.

knattyknits: omg. seriously. i can't believe that place just has all that wonderful old virgin wool sitting around. there is a bunch of "2-ply" yarn, which I think is a lacy weight and I think I may go get some spools of that later and make a pretty shawl. I think that yarn needs to be turned into beautiful things instead of sitting in a corner as a remnant of the 60's. hehe

I really want to make these socks, I just have to order the yarn.  Any good recomendations besides the koigu?

I think it sort of depends on what you're looking for. Do you want something that doesn't cost as much?
Knitpicks Gloss ($25 dollars worth, merino wool and silk) and Palette ($10 dollars worth, peruvian wool)are two options that I've seen people using.
One of the women in the KAL is using some yarn from Fearless Fibers which is a local place here in Oregon.

i started these with some stash yarn on size 2s because i wear a size 11 shoe and i figured it would help make the sock bigger, well it made the sock way too big, i need to get some yarn and work the socks on size 1's

Mustaches are sooo 2 years ago
