I'm trying really hard...

Seven. Seven single socks (and I am not even counting some that have left my house on a mission) that want a partner finished - or started, depending on how you look at it. The Fair-Isle-Sock is getting really old, it's been sitting there for a while.


I would say that's a major case of Singleitis. Today I am determined to do something about it, tomorrow I might start two more designs...so, sue me!

And I haven't even shown you the sock I ripped out and the one I started toe-up - till I decided that toe-up just disturbs my knitting-sock-order way too much and I don't really like it. I can do it, sure, but I'm not getting jiggy wit'it!

You can do it! Wow, all of them are so pretty!

Guess what I saw today? YOUR socks in the Winter Interweave Knits preview!! LOVELY!

Maybe you should start wearing mis-matched socks. I hate the second sock to. I consider it a test of my virtues.

do you have a favorite basic sock pattern? I am just starting to knit socks and LOVE it.

Ah, a challenge! I can't wait to see your IWK sock! And try it...Although, if I become addicted to both socks AND lace, I am blaming you. :)

I too saw your sock on Interweave today. It looks gorgeous so it could be my next challenge, soon as I'm done my million other projects...

Question: What is the average yardage YOU require for a decent length sock? I think hand knitting an "anklet" is sort of a waste because you don't see it unless you take your shoes off. But, I also don't want to have to buy two hanks of fancy stuff.... I must read some more and see what your favorite pattern is... If there is one!!
