Socktoberfest

November 1, 2005


My one sock – I’m frantically knitting up the cuff of the second and will take another (more creative) picture later. I’ve really enjoyed this – it was my first time making my own pattern (toe up with short-row heel). Though it wasn’t as complicated as I thought it would be, I’m still pretty impressed with myself 🙂

If only research was this simple to enjoy…

Thanks for organizing this Lolly!

Update! I finished them! I’m still getting used to the mismatch of the stripes, but it’s not sock yarn so I didn’t expect them to match. They’re nice and warm for this, um, not so cold October weather? Hmm. Perhaps I should move to a colder climate….

Socks get their own photo shoot.

So far I’ve knit a scarf and the front of a sweater on my machine – I’m not overly thrilled with my machine (it jams and drops stitches and all that when I try to decrease), but it definitely makes knitting stockinette go much faster. Overall, I like it. I’ll include some pictures when I’ve blocked the scarf.

Additionally, I finally gave in and frogged the bind off on my mom’s FBS – I have to block it still, but I think the points will be better this time around. In short, many pictures to come!

    Congrats on the sock! One of my New Year’s Resolutions (for 2005, but it’s getting pushed to 2006) is to do socks & master dpns. Pretty yarn, too.

    Good job on all counts! Those look so warm and comfy. I am still chugging to get on the sock train. It just hasn’t clicked for me. Maybe one of these days 🙂

    Great job on the socks! The mismatched stripes give it such a fun feel (identical’s boring!) and they look so warm and cozy, too. What a fantastic way to end Socktoberfest! 🙂

    WOW! what a great pair of socks. You see, it will begin with envy. Envy will motivate my desire to knit socks.

    Looking good so far, and I like the other pair, too! Socktoberfest was just the best idea, wasn’t it?

    HEY! I just noticed how you have your list of bloggers arranged, that’s COOL – original. I used to be a type setter, so it ‘popped’ to me =)

    It took forever to do because I did it by hand in the template…never again!

    Thanks though 🙂
