Is anyone doing the socks appeal mens boxers. I have started. I already have a gage problem.
Hey thanks for all the feed back I am going along fine now that I went down to a us 4 and am knitting tight.( I was going to knit with a 3, but I had a feeling there needed to be some drape) I am already done with the first 2 wedges. I figure I will just make sure that the waist fits!( It's not like I will be wearing them out on the street). I will post pics soon

I sent you a PM on Rav, but yeah, I had to go down to a 3 as well. I think I could have gone down to a 2 like Kenny, but I'm doing a size smaller than I normally wear to make up the difference.
I stayed at 5, which is strange because I'm a tight knitter as well. I usually have to go up (? to 6) in order to get gauge. I'm just about done with the center panel, about 2" more to go.
I'm using the Trekking XXL yarn and I had to go down to a 3 to get gauge, which is strange because I knit tightly - I usually have to go up a size for gauge.
I ended up improvising on the gauge - but did a size 5 needle... knitted the "small" boxers and they're about the right size -- 32-33"....
I had to go all the way down to a 2. but of course, I used different yarn.
What's the problem? I know a lot of us had to go down in needle size to get gauge.
Did you mean gauge or gag problem? Sorry, I could not resist ;)
