One Down. One To Go.
Pattern: Melanie's Twist
Needles: Size 2
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock
Colorway: Buck's Bar
These socks were so much fun to do. They have enough patterning to keep you interested, but not so much that you can't watch a little TV too.
Now ... on to sock #2 which should be easier now that I have some experience with the pattern.
Come on over and visit at my blog for more info on the socks or just to say hello. :-)

Another Knit-along Newbie
My current sock is photographed below. The pattern is Melanie's Twist. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in the colorway: Buck's Bar.
I'm real happy to be here and look forward to being an active (i.e. actually getting some knitted socks finished!) member of this knit-along.

Newbie with new socks!
The pattern is "Cascading Leaves" by Jeanie Townsend, and the yarn is Scheepjes Invicta. I knitted them on 3.0 mm Bryspun dpns that I was trying out. I started these back in the early spring, but they kept getting put aside for other projects that were on a deadline. But now they are finally done, and I get to enjoy them!

After a bout of 2nd sock syndrome (lone alpaca sock that's been done for some time), I discovered a cure -- alternate knitting between two pairs. Here you see the poor alpaca next to an Opal Tiger sock in a purled ladder pattern. I am now working on the second alpaca sock and humming right along. Both are inspired by Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch.
I've also joined the Mystery Sock KAL. Anyone else?
New KAL member and first-time sock maker
I'm new to the KAL and I'll be starting on my first pair of socks in the very near future, so I'll probably be needing some help here soon. ;)>I'm going for broke and making the Log Cabin Socks from Handknit Holidays (see the picture) rather than something simple and straightforward because that's just the way I am...and because the only reason I'm knitting socks to begin with is the awesome pattern.
I'm a bit nervous, but it doesn't look too hard from what I've seen. Just the heels that have me a tad worried. :)

The yarn is Knit Picks Sock Memories in Gladiolus, the "pattern", such as it is, is my own. :)
(on my wrist so the ribbing shows up a bit more)
Good to be here!

I have just started to knit Unst from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush. I am using Opal Rodeo Cotton (shade 1174) and Brittany Birch 2.25mm dpns. This is the first time i have knitr with yarn with such a high cotton content and I am finding it really comfortable.
My other sock project is Cherry Tree Hill pattern for Basic Ribbed Socks, I have completed one sock, but am concentrating on the Unst at the moment as it is the sock of the month for a kal. I am using Cherry Tree Hill Supersock (shade Northern Lights) and BB 2.75mm dpns. I love the texture of this yarn and the colours are divine. The photo really doesn't do the yarn justice. It is a lovely deep purple variagated yarn with hot pink and bright green.
