Socks are finished!

Wahoo!  I should have made the cuffs a bit tighter but Monte loves them anyhow.  Unfortunately, some cat hair from a friends house got on them and he is allergic to cats.  So they will need some washing first.

Hubby needs something to cover his feet while walking on our cold floors.  His socks are too thin and his feet are too big to just go out and buy slippers.  Hell, Big and Tall only go up to size 13!  So I am going to give my hand at toe up socks, hopefully they will be thick enough.

Pattern creation can be found at Indigirl’s site here.

My own project can be found here.

I’m going to use some left over yarn, Caron Simply Soft Autumn Red.  The pattern is toe up, first time for me, hopefully it isn’t too much trouble.  I’m also hopeing to find a nice linear cable pattern for the front and top of the sock.

Clouds of Love

I’ve started the project. My yarn is Caron Simply Soft and the color is white.

I’ve already modified the pattern, of course :). I’ve made it wider adding a 1 additional of the big cable set and one additional of the smaller cable set.

Edit: Here is some more detail on the change I made. I’ve adjusted the pattern so now it is a bit wider. After I finish one row on the graph I then go back to right before the heart looking cables and continue from there until the end. The sequence is: braid, small cable set, braid, large cable group, braid, small cable group, braid, (as is normal), big cable set, braid, small cable set, braid, row ending.

Christmas Sweaters

Pattern:  Amused

Source: Raverly

Yarn: Caron Simply Soft, Lavender Blue.  315 yd/skein, 3 skiens

Needles: size 9 circular and 5 size 9 dpn

Size: Small, Medium, and Large

Dates: Lena – Sept 15th to Oct 14th 2010, Janette’s – Oct. 15th to Nov. 6th, 2010, Tina’s – Nov. 7th to Dec. 7th 2010

Modifications:  Collar pattern modified, sleaves are full long sleaves.


The collar patten did this weird thing where the cable went over different stitchs then in the body.  For Janette’s and Tina’s sweater I modified the collar pattern so that the cross was where it should be.  Not certain why the designer did it the way they did, it looks absolutly weird and is unnessary, the modification doesn’t really change all that much, besided how it is written.  The change is simple, instead of crossing a k2, p2 under/over a k2, p2 I cross a p2, k2 with a p2, k2 when the cross is suppose to happen.  This lines everything up correctly.


Row 4: Sl 1 knitwise, K2 [(follow like C8L except p2, k2) (like C8R except p2, k2) p2, k2. repeat 7 times, k1.

If need be I can write out the row fully and correctly.
