Socks soar on two circuolar needles

I went to a local yarn and knitting supply shop and found this book.  It is called Socks soar on two circular needles..   by  Cat Bordi'

I bought the book,  the needles are a problem.  they were sold out of the size 1 , 2, 3   24"  Addi turbo needles i was wanting.  Can order them on internet, so not that big a deal.   I bought some sock yarn.  cant wait to do my first pair of socks....I allso believe in the sharing of information.  Any of you that knit socks would be interested in the book.  I could scan and make a file  to send to you, or copy on copy machine and mail it to you.  I feel we need to help eachother grow in this fasinating hobby.

ID Tags for Circular Needles

There have been discussions here in the past about methods of storing circular needles.  One of the challenges I find is how to label the sizes so that it's easy to get my hands on the correct size without a lot of hassle. 

I just puchased these little plastic tags from patternworks.com.  The tags fit onto the cable and are labeled in both US and metric.  They slip snugly onto the cable and slide back and forth so in reality one wouldn't need to remove the tag when knitting.  They do not have the needle length on them but that won't be a bother.

They come in 2 different sizes, from 0 - 6 and 7 - 35 US.  The only needles I couldn't tag are the 00 and 000.  Be aware that there are several tags for each size.  I didn't know this and over-ordered.  Not to worry as I'll send the extras to my best friend for his circulars.

Hats #2 & #3

These are my second and third attempts at making hats (which acutally had an end result) and my first times using circular and DPN's.  Hat #2 was done with Cascade worsted Peruvian Highland wool on size 7, and the pattern was Bidda's Headhugger which I believe I found a link to on here somewhere.  It doesn't look like much, but it was good practice with the circular and DPN's, and getting the hang of the decreases at the top of the hat.  My first attempt at doing this ended badly so I unravelled the whole thing and tried a different pattern.

Unlympic Knitting

Unlympic Mittens I decided not to sign up for the Knitting Olympics because I wasn't sure my wrists would hold up, but I still decided to go ahead with this Unlympic project. These are double layer mittens - baby alpaca inside, hand-dyed & handspun border leicester/blueface leicester cross on the outside. This is the first project I've ever made for myself, and I'm very happy with the results.
