August socks are done.

I finished that pair of socks on August 31st, just barely under the deadline. I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out and hope my friend enjoys them. No pictures are posted because I forgot them this morning. I'll remedy that within a couple of days and possibly post a sneak preview of the September socks. They are knitting up superbly in Manos del Uruguay "Alegria" - some of the softest sock yarn I've ever worked with.

[By the way...it is absolutely fabulous to have my tag line return to my replies and comments. Thanks, Darrel.]

Men's Golf Slipper

Hi Guys,

I don't mean to invade your space (I am woman), but I am in need of a pattern (preferably knit because I'm first learning to crochet, but if I had to, I'd try crochet). I am looking for a golf slipper pattern and was wondering if anyone has one or knows where I can get one.

Thanks much!

Question about Bruce Weinstein Henley Sweater

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!

Hi Guys,

Socks are finally done

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!

Socks and Blanket

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.
