Yesterday I finished the brightly colored socks that I've been working on. We were at the lake, but I immediately cast on a darker, more fall-colored pair. I'm doing something brand new for me: I'm making my own pattern. So far, I cast on 64 stitches. Then I did 12 rounds of k3, p1. Now I'm doing a four row pattern:
  1. k3, p1 around
  2. k around
  3. repeat row 1
  4. p around
After doing about 6 repeats of this, it seemed like I needed to make my sock a little smaller for the ankle, so I've decreased 4 stitches on round 2 of the sixth repeat which takes me down to 60 stitches. I plan to do that again on the eighth repeat, leaving 56 stitches. I'm pretty sure I'll use that number all the way through the foot.

Here's our spot to share our knitting. Let's post pictures and ideas as well as tips.

You can find lots of knitting help here:

Besides my sock, I'm working on two projects: a Fairisle vest and a Gemma cardigan.

Tomorrow I'll put up some photos from our Tuesday meetings.
