After a year or more of false starts and other varieties of grief, I'm glad to report I was finally able to achieve some long-desired goals for the MWK web site:
I had the same problem that Joe in Wyoming had. I tried sending an email to Ken in Maine and got an error message. Is email not working?
The posting below was made before Ron helped me figure things out. I hadn't read the very last set of instructions in the pattern, so I missed that I need to go back after completing the sweater and pick up stitches at the very first row, do a k1xp1 and then fold under and hem. Silly me. Thanks Ron!
August 20, 2015--The message about unable to send e-mail is still showing up. However, the green message "Message sent to ..." is there. Is the private message system separate from the e-mail links, or what? Sorry to belabor this but I want to be assured my private messages are going through.
Oh my how socks can take a long time when you don't work on them everyday. I started these socks about 4 months ago and after a year-long study of socks, I lost interest midway through the first sock. I'm sure you can all sympathize with how hard it was to push through the second sock. But, now I am confident that I can make socks well...no holes...thanks to the Evil Sock Genius!
I knitted up the second Arne and Carlos sock yarn for myself. Also knitted two pairs of socks for my sisters as birthday gifts. I used 2.25 mm needles for all three pairs. 68 stitches for my socks and 60 for those of my sisters. I had some Briggs and Little sport left over from other projects and knitted up a blanket. I have made some in the past but they were about 60 inches square and didn't cover me from head to toe when napping.
They were finished Sunday afternoon - July 19, 2015 - and were begun on June 28, 2015. Three weeks from start to finish...not bad for me. [Of course the second knit up faster as all the details were figured out...about a week.]
