Ideas on how to bind off ...

So I've made several pairs of socks going toe-up. I have not yet found a bind-off method that I like.

Tah-Dah!

Here they are, the socks I entered for the Walla Walla County Fair. Not a very involved pattern, one row of K2P2 and the next row of nothing but K.

Happy Dance!

Just got home from the LYS. Happened to find she now carries Austermann Step, made with Aloe. According to the label, it's "vacation for your feet." Do I need more sock yarn?

Wish me luck!

Aug 5 I committed to having a pair of socks done and ready for display at the county fair by Aug 21.

Size 13 ?!!?

OK, so I've decided to make a friend of mine some socks or felted slippers. Trouble is he wears a size 13 shoe. Holy Moly! How much yarn am I going to need for this project?

1776 Socks

A birthday present for my cousin to keep her feet warm while she waits out the presidential primaries/soap opera to play itself out.

Whine, whine, whine

Here's my dilemma: I have made so much chocolate fudge, so much peanut butter fudge, and so much divinity in the past few days, it's no wonder I haven't gotten any knitting done. I hate that.

Teaching kids to knit

The local elementary school called and asked me if I could come in and teach a group of 2nd graders (7 and 8 year olds) how to knit. So far 3 kids are signed up (2 boys and a girl).
