well, DH's fuzzy feet are finished, and they fit! that's a big plus because I felted them while he was at work.  I will post a pic, but I want to get one with them on his feet I think.  I'll post that as soon as I can get one, he's not here right now. 

and I hope to be casting on for my "real" socks by next week! 

happy knitting!

two little monkeys covering my toes:

I used Maizy yarn - which is made primarily of corn.  How bizzare!   The yarn was splitty & a little difficult to work with - but I *can* put it in the washer/dryer - which earns it bonus points.

Thank you!!!   Maizy made by Crystal Palace & was just at my LYS.  I thought it was relatively inexpensive for sock yarn - I think it was about $6 per skein.

Hey! I'd love to join too!
Was actually looking to see if anyone else was making the fishnet knee highs from Lingerie Style Knitting (my current fave knitting book).
I started sock #1 two days ago. It is the farthest I have gotten on making any sort of sock!!

I found someone else's FO on a blog here:
Heck, they might be here on craftster, I am not sure though! If they are I hope they don't mind me posting this link.

The pair I am working on are basic black, knitted in Eden's 100% bamboo. The yarn is super nice feeling but it does have a tendency to split. And lucky for me (not) I will probably have to make a trip to the yarn shop as I think 3 balls won't be enough to finish these up.
I'll try to post a pic when the first one is done!! Hopefully it will be tonight or tomorrow  Grin  I am such a nerd because I want to finish them before we go see Cut Chemist and DJ Shadow in Chicago next week!
Can't wait to see how your socks are going  Wink

those look like cool socks! happy to have you join us Smiley  I"ll be casting on for my socks as soon as my yarn arrives.  I decided to order something rather than use what I currently have.  hehe  oh pics of fuzzy feet are on their way.

Well I finished sock #1 on Sunday, so that rocks!! But now on to sock #2...ugh! Will post photo when I get a chance!! How are everyone else's socks doing??

my yarn still hasn't arrived.  BUT I've got pics of fuzzy feet, I just can't load them on this computer.  I'm hoping to see some yarn tomorrow.

Finished one Pom last night, have not cast off because I want to do a few extra rows on the ribbing if I can, but won't know whether I have enough until I finish the other one. It's tight but I like my socks tight... but it's really tight! Hopefully a wash will fix that. Anyone have a suggestion for casting off in twisted single ribbing? I am thinking about twisting every knit stitch and then doing a normal tubular castoff?

I finally got that pic onto my computer! so here's DH's fuzzy feet.  pay no attention to the holes on the side.  DH's feet are huge! so I think the slippers streatched out a little bit when he put them on, and this yarn felts beautifully, but I was using really big needles for this yarn. so I think the combination of it all made the holes appear.  there aren't any on the other 2 pair  I made, but they're smaller.
