as foolish as this sounds, if you just follow her instructions with the worsted weight using fingering/sock weight, you will end up with a toddler sock!

Have you knitted the Puck's Mischief yet? I love the colors but I'd love even more to see it knitted up. Wanna take a picture for me? :

Okay, so here and here is my failed silver's sock class sock. Please laugh, I did. I must have missed some of the decreasing for the foot, because it is really baggy. But, guess what I got for my birthday last night?? Pretty blue sock yarn to make Clessidra! I'm sure they will take me forever, but they are so cute! Now the question is, what do I do with that lovely green wool I bought to make my first socks? Now that I know the basics of sock knitting, I don't really want to make them with dk weight yarn. Any ideas? It's a heavenly soft superwash wool.

I think I would go nuts trying to do this for the first time on ittybitty needles with sock yarn. I think you should try it first with the worsted.

Anyone wanna chime in on first toe-up real sock patterns? I want to do a normal pair of socks now too! (or do you think I should actually finish this pair first? )

I won't show you my first sock attempts -- I think I knit parts of about 6 socks before I ever knit an entire pair! It does look like you forgot to do the decreased for the gusset, but they look cozy! I'd just set the yarn aside for now. I bet you'll end up wanting to do a pair of "house socks" later on, or maybe a sweet little baby sweater... (and now I've spread the stashing bug on to another knitter...)

Ooh, it is knitting up beautifully! I had to take a break from it (and put it on toothpicks ) so I could use my 1's to knit a pair of socks for my MIL's birthday (which is Monday so I'll never make it), but I'm excited to get back to them/it. I'll try to post a pic on my blog tomorrow. I'm woefully behind in posting FO & in progress knitting pics...

I'm done!!

Wanting to do another pair, two one one circ but finding it difficult to find a pattern for that. I love the Clessidra on knitty and the Seduction socks, but can you use that method for those? Also, I'd need a bigger size on the Seduction, how to do that??

Fun, FUN!!

Those look great, Lisa! You can use any needle method you want with any socks, I believe, it's just that different patterns give their instructions as to different stitch set-ups based on the needles the pattern writer used. If you can read the pattern & rearrange the stitches to the needle style/method you're using it's no problem.

I love the colors you chose for your socks. I have no advice about the different methods, but if you start knitting Clessidra, definitely post pics! I am almost ready to start a pair of them myself, though I am having trouble with my gauge. I posted about it here

As far as I know you can pretty much do two on two circs for any pattern, can't you? I do one on two circs and don't use DPNs at all. I'm doing Seduction right now and it seems to be a looser pattern than what it says for shoe size 6-8. I'm normally an 8 1/2 and my guage was spot on when I did my swatch before starting. I've slipped it on over my foot to test it out and its pretty loose (I'm about half way done with the foot part, a couple inches short of starting the toe.) I'm gonna end up giving them to my sister because they're gonna be too big for me. Not sure how big your feet are but I'd guess that the pattern is actually bigger because it does say in the intro paragraph that its meant as a "lounging" sock...

You could just cast on 8 add'l st. as its a pattern repeat of 8 OR if you think that would be too big I think you could do 4 extra st by adding a k1, RT, k1 at the beginning... but you'd want to check the pattern to make sure that's feasible, just my first guess that it would probably work because once you get to the foot part there are 4 "extra" st on top of the foot at the end of the row and thats a k1, RT, k1 so it would be symetrical if you did the same at the beginning.

Its a very pretty pattern and I've enjoyed doing it, but honestly, it takes a lot of brain work for me, its not a mindless sitting in front of the tv while talking on the phone and knitting all at once pattern!!

Hedera from knitty is a nice easy knit. 4-row repeat that is easy to remember. Looks pretty impressive once it's done, but really not too hard.

Can you do 2 at once from the top down?

Oh nevermind on the brainless comment regarding the 2 circs. I was confused... looks like you were asking about the toe up on one circ, right?! In that case I'd think that any toe up pattern would be transferrable to the two at once method, right? I've never tried two at once, I have a hard enough time doing one at a time!

I got it in the March magic yarn ball swap from dandelions2. It is Yarn Love's Juliet in Cupid and Spring Green. I LOVE this yarn!

Aurora -- love the colors!!

I finally finished mine. They aren't much to look at, but they're super comfy! I'm actually coveting my MILs -- they fit me perfectly if they're too small for her... *evil grins*

Pics in my blog!
