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 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!

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:

Is Email Working?

Hello guys,
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?

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!

"Messages" down? UPDATE

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.

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 holes...thanks to the Evil Sock Genius!
