Soliciting Sock Suggestions

I would like to begin making socks using circular needles. I know that DPN patterns can be adapted, but does anyone know of any patterns out there written specifically for circular needles that a novice might be able to understand? I appreciate it.

a long, slow knit

One evening last summer as the fog got sucked in, thick and cold, through the Golden Gate and the foghorns bellowed low and stubbornly into the oncoming mist like giant, 3-story cows in the distance, I picked up some jute gardening twine from deep in my stash and started double-knitting this rug.

I have complete the Horseshoe Cap design by Janet Wray with the fibre I received at the Guilds Christmas Gift Exchange. If you are interested there is more on this at my blog.

Happy new year - and resolutions?

Dear fellow knitters,

Happy new year to you all from London.

It seems that Quinton has done better than me on the knitted gift front - my Dad'd jumper never even made it onto the needles, let alone off. Although I did finish a felted reindeer table mat (!!!!!) and a cable hat...

Happy 2012! Do you have a fiber resolution?

I do. Last year for my birthday the kids bought me a spinning wheel. And a lovely wheel it is, despite it's layer of dust. So, this year, I resolve to pull the spinning wheel back out, dusting her off and learning more about spinning. Someday I hope to have an addiciton to my own hand spun and died yarns in addition to all the other stuff I tend to buy.
