« The Sock is DONE! | Main | starting over »




Regia is good - and I've used wool ease and been very happy with the nice thick socks. I'm a top down person because turning the heel the other way is way to scary for me although toe up makes more practical sense because you can keep going until you almost run out of yarn. And I'm a very plain no pattern in my socks at all kind of person.


I've made a pair with Koigu KPPM, and it's yummy. I made it from the top down using two circulars, and it went quickly (and no ladders).


i use the basic sock pattern from "the handy book of knitting patterns" -- it may look scary at first but a photocopy and a highlighter and everything is easy as pie. the pattern is basic and is set-up to adjust for any guage and any size sock. its top down.

i love koigu painters palette merino.


I love Lorna's Laces, but recently branched out and picked up some Scholler Stahl Limobo Mexiko; it is very warm and the colors are fantastic. I've also knitted with Mellenweit (not sure of the spelling) and it has held up very well under multiple washings. I use a pattern I picked up at the LYS by Melinda Goodfellow. The pattern is top down and gives multiple sizes from infant to adult men. Normally I use two circs, but I am attempting dpns.

Socks are addicting!


I love Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino. It feels like Koigu but is machine washable. I do use DPN's most of the time. Cuff-down is what I learned at first however am starting to venture in to toe-up. Happy Knitting! :)


OH! and I just noticed that this post is from last NOVEMBER! LoL Hope all is well.
