Diagonal Lace Socks

I just finished up the Diagonal Lace Knit-Along socks last night.  And a week early to boot!  I can’t say that I’ve found the love for the toe-up method even though these are my 2nd pair of toe-up socks.  It just seems too awkward. And I don’t really understand how to alter all the sock anatomy parts to make them fit better like I do on top-down socks. I guess it just takes time to gain an appreciation for this method. None-the-less they are a nice pair of socks. And I’m going to give them away to my best friend who recently commented  that the other pair of brown socks I made her had shrunk in the dryer.  These should fit much better!

Pattern – Diagonal Lace Socks from Socks From the Toe Up by Wendy Johnson
Yarn – Cascade Heritage, color Brown
Needles – 2.25mm

Eunice Socks

And… last week I finished the Eunice socks.  I love how these turned out even though I’m not a big fan of knitting cables on teeny tiny sock needles.

Pattern – Eunice from Sock Innovation by Cookie A.
Yarn – Dalegarn Baby Ull, color Black
Needles – 2.25mm

Next up in our knit-along:

April/May = Jagged by Through the Loops (Ravelry link) OR alternately Pinked from Interweave Knits, Winter 2010 issue (Ravelry link)

I also started knitting the Turkish Bed Socks because my sister-in-law gave me the pattern for Christmas.  Plus, they look like good summer socks to have on hand, don’t you think?

*We watched the movie Eat. Pray. Love. and it wasn’t much better than the book.  My apologies to anyone who liked it, but I just didn’t enjoy the book and the movie didn’t improve the story for me.

    I have the pattern and yarn for the Turkish bed socks…but I am off making socks…I just can’t get them right or at least the same as each other… I completely agree on the Eat, Pray, Love thing…did not like the book for the most part and the movie was just eh for me, too…

    Both of these turned out beautifully! The little bed socks look so sweet. I thought you might enjoy seeing a beautiful pair of knit/felted slippers posted on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/26030241@N02/5485347231/
