I have a pair of fuzzy feet that I need to make for DH, these are basically just very large socks that are then felted, so I count them as socks.  then I want to knit some real socks.  I've died half my yarn for them, today I plan to dye the rest of it.  I have even picked out my patern:

aren't they pretty!? 

so, as soon as I finish these fuzzy feet, and dye my yarn I'll be casting on for these. I'll also be knitting these 2 at a time in order to avoid 2nd sock syndrome.

anyone else want to join me with whatever socks you'll be making?  I thought it'd be fun to share our socks!

I am having second sock syndrome with this pattern:
I am hope to get it done before the winter is over, lol!   Grin  I can't wait to see what your fuzzy feet look like.  What yarn are you using?  Speaking of which, I'm using skacel trampoline sock yarn (That might be close to that actual name.... or not), and it is in tigery colors.  I should probably post a picture of the first one soon......

Great idea! I am most of the way through my first Pomatomus sock, going slow because I am distracted by knitting a present for someone. Doing one toe-up, one top-down so the scales are symmetrical... toe-up one first so I can use up all/most of the wool instead of having leftover bits. Hand-dyed by moi. Greenish. I am loving these already... hope the second one goes faster, the twisted ribbing is a bit awkward even though I knit Continental. Pictures on the weekend maybe...

Love the Monkeys!

such a smartie, redwitch!  I never would have thought to knit one toe-up & the other cuff down for the pomatomus socks!   I want to try those soon & will keep that little trick in mind.

redwitch, is there a pic of this pattern somewhere?  I'm confused as to why you'd want to do the socks that way, but if I saw a picture maybe I'd understand.  sounds really cool though. 

my slippers are nearing completion.  I may have them ready to be felted by today.  we'll have to see how it goes.  I have several inches on the instep, and then the toe decreases left to knit, but they're both on one circ, and it's very simple, so I'm hopeful.  I'll have to post pics soon Smiley

I'm glad you all have joined me in this.

here's a pic of these slippers on the needles 2 at a time.

Pomatomus from Knitty.com, way cute... you will see what I mean! If you want to do the similar heel flap, flaky, in the toe-up one (rather than subbing a short-row heel) let me know I will try to work out what I did and post it, it's a pretty good replica of the top-down one IMO.

OH! I get it now.  I would love to do these. could you post what you did when you have a chance?  I won't be making them immediately or anything, but I would love to do them some day!

oh and I'll be felting DH's fuzzy feet today! Smiley
