Newbie lesson

I'm not a newbie, but I thought dye lots were a thing of the past. When I realized I hadn't purchased enough yarn for the socks I'm knitting, I went to a store and bought some yarn. Waaaaaaayyyy too light. Wrong dye lot. Having driven almost fifty miles in total, I finally found a ball of the proper dye lot.

Big Thanks

I want to give a big thanks to all the men on here who give me positive feedback on my knitting. You are all true artists, and an inspiration to guys like me. Big hugs and a firm handshake!!!

First sock

This is my first completed sock. I've already cast on for the second one. It may be a basic pattern, but I'm very proud of this.

Knitting socks

Well, I started knitting socks, from the top down for my first pair. I am using the magic loop method. However, I hate, hate, hate doing the traditional slip stitch heel. I hope there's a different method out there for when I try the next pair. And where do I find the brilliant colors used by Crafty Andy and others? I don't find anything like that around here.

Socks and ramblings

I just downloaded the pattern for The Brethren Sock. I can't find a pattern
for socks with larger needles and yarn, so I'm just jumping in. Now with the
Brethren Sock, just a plain one. Also, do socks need to be blocked? I am an
addicted knitter, I take it everywhere. Dr's appts., long car rides, friends
houses, even to picnics. I have no shame in what I do anymore. KNIT ON

Seeking tips for socks

Okay, I'm taking the plunge. I have size one needles and fingering weight sock yarn. I'm looking for tips, tricks and suggestions before I start. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

TERRY

Back with the needles

Good morning gentlemen,
I'm back with needles and yarn in my hands. The error of my ways was made clear to me from a fellow member on here, PHEW! The kind and caring words made me see the light.

I've found a knitting group, Seneca Falls Knitting Club. While composed of women until this point, they welcomed me.

now and then

Needles, hooks, books and yarn donated to a local Elder care home. I will pop in now and then to see what projects the guys on here are up to.

Best of Luck....Knit on.
