Cotton socks and Entrelac

I've decided to fight through the cotton/wool yarn I described earlier.  The problems I encountered were that the ribs were very loose, and the leg was very tight.  I've decided on a small needle for the rib, and a larger one for the rest of the sock.  Wish me luck, men!

 In the mean time, while pondering my next move with the yarn from hell, I set out to practice entrelac, since I never was able to master it before.  Well, I found a pattern at  my LYS, set to work, and finally was able to get it!  I actually got it! 

Now, if i could just figure out how to use it in something more than a small handbag!

Cotton Sock advice, please

I've been playing with a new 65%/30%/5% Cotton, Wool, nylon yarn for socks, and have been having a heck of a time with it.  This is my first attempt to knit with cotton, and i've got a feeling I'm going to have to adjust something, somewhere.  Any advice for working with cotton?

I work with dpns for socks, but hope to learn to use circs soon, even two at a time on circs!

 

Glad to be here, Men!

Good evening, men.  I've been knitting for some time, but have just recently discovered the joys of knitting socks!

Of course, I expect to be motivated to push myself into other areas of knitting once I hear and see what you all are doing!

When's the next chat, by the way?
