OK.... I've now knit a second pair of basic socks, so I'm having another stab at Hedera...and...i'ts going OK so far  Grin .  I'm counting sts ALL the time, to avoid losing my place, but it seems to be working.  Keep your fingers crossed for me, and I'll show you a photograph of WIP later.


Here is a work in progress picture:

I know it's a terrible picture - believe me when I tell you that the others I took were even fuzzier.  Undecided  The yarn is slightly less dull in real life - it's a sort of grey/blue.  It's not the type of thing I choose at all.  I think I must have been depressed the last time I went to the yarn shop.
Anyway, I think it's working this time....

Right then... I've finished hedera sock #1, but I don't like it.  Sad  


I chose a really dull colour (why did I do that? it's really not "me"), and the long heel flap thing has made it quite baggy on me.  Also, even though I only did 10 pattern repeats before starting the heel flap, it's still too long for my taste.  So I'm really upset and I think I'm going to have to rip it out and make something else.  Cry

Oh yes I'll join in if it's not too late. My daughter has been nagging me for a pair of socks and I have a lovely set of pink 4ply wool needing a project so count me in. Just finishing a snuggly mega chunky rib jumper for my husband (I'm on the last sleeve), then I shall join you ladies.

Well, I finally gave up looking for my lost needle, then went looking for a new set to three different Michael's before realizing that this store just hasn't caught on to sock knitting yet- they have no needlies below US #3 -so frustrating! 

So I called a smaller store and asked if they carried the dpns I was looking for, and the lady on the phone actually said "Do they even come that small?" Unbelievable. 

So, after all that, I found the right size while visiting a friend in another town this past weekend, got home and immediately prepared myself to an evening of crazy-fast knitting (to make up for all the time I have lost), and realized I had left my shopping bag at my friend's house! 

There go my plans to be wearing my socks by June!

I posted my finished image in completed projects

I did find I'd 'lose' stitches. But I don't think I dropped any. What I think it was is my yo's slipping off my needles...so in a few place I did have to pick it up on the next round....does that make sense?

I mean....they haven't come apart!

And regarding Micheals. SHEESH. They have only size 8 or 10 dpns in bamboo and few smaller metal ones....But i'm not big on metal. I found more success on ebay or just ordering online. I haven't ventured to any LYS for needles here in Van...its cheaper off the net.

No, I was merely reading the Muggle magazines. I do love knitting patterns.

I finished mine a little bit ago, but didn't have a chance to upload a picture. Hmm the toes look sort of funny and short here, but I it is the camera angle.
