Just wondering if anyone is a member. Is it worthwhile to join?

Finally finished these socks for my sister. They will go perfect with her work clothes as she wears nurse's scrubs. They are a little more aqua-green than the pics. She already saw one when I finished it and loved it - fit perfect. Actually ended up knitting three socks as I had to frog the second ALL THE WAY when I found a mistake in the heel of the second one - a mistake she would have felt as it was on the bottom of the heel- ugh! Anyway glad to have finished. Will pop them in the post this week.

Just finished the vest I have been working on. It's a nice moss green. Light enough to wear during the summer - at least in San Francisco where our summers can be a little cooler than the rest of the country. It'll look nice with a white t-shirt, or even a dress shirt. Thanks to those who helped when I couldn't figure out the pattern. As with most projects, I learned a lot!

Hi...time for another question re harrison vest pattern...
I am at the section where I am shaping the shoulders, and I keep ending up with six 'extra' stitches when i am completing the first side, reversing shaping...
Here is what it says:

Starting a vest (Rowan Harrison vest). Already stumped...grrr...it says:
"beg with a K row work in st st. shaping sides by inc 1 st at each end of 15th row, then on 3 foll 14th rows."
Does this mean at the 15th knit row I increase by one at the beginning of the row and end of the row then for every 14th row I do the same thing three times more?

I had some left over yarn from the Christmas stockings I made recently and ran across this pattern. Double knitting? Why not? LOL OMG I had to frog this 4-5 times before I got the hang of it! I am now making one in cranberry and oatmeal...then packing them both away in all the Christmas stuff for next year. This looks easy, but I really had to pay attention to the pattern so not to make mistakes...there is one anyway, but I am okay with it. There is a saying that nothing should be perfect except that which is made by God. My knitting is proof of that! LOL

Haven't checked in for awhile, but that doesn't mean I haven't been knitting! I just finished a Christmas stocking for the husband and a couple of pairs of socks for myself. The light grey socks have a spiraling pattern from contrasting knit/purl stitches - can't see it in the photo too well, but I am happy with the results.

I am knitting Spiraling Square Socks by Jenny Blackburn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spiralling-square-socks) and am a bit stumped on the heel set up. The directions say:
K7, turn your work so that the wrong side is facing, P34
(Note: Knitting 7 before turning and purling 34 lines it up for the top of foot pattern later.)
