Ankle Socks

It is amazing how difficult it is to learn a new skill. With this pair of ankle socks, I was bound and determined to conquer the Wrap and Turn stitches in the heel.

Brethren Socks Help HELP!!!

I'm trying to knit the Brethren Sock that so many on here have made. But I've done something wrong. Would any of the guys who have completed these successfully be able to help please/????? I'm using magic loop.

Advice on short-row heels? What's your favourite method?

Well, I've spent almost all of my summer on this one sock, which for various reasons-the FIFA World Cup being a distracting culprit-has been done and redone many times.

What could it be?

Hello gents. I am currently finishing up a project which I'll post more about in a few days. In the meantime, I took some pictures of the in-progress item which looks so weird that I had to share it. Any guesses on what it is I'm making?

I need help / advice with current DK project

Hey gang,
I did not want to share this just yet, but I am running out of ideas. I am working on a mod/drop sleeve double knit cardigan. The problem is: how to pickup stitches in double knit and maintain the color pattern.
What I would love to do is pickup the stitches on the fly (as each row is worked).
I have tried:
