socks for who? socks for me!
Hey all! I'm signing in to say yay! I've figured out how to cast on for my first toe ups. I was participating in Socktoberfest 2006 and found this KAL and ring too. I've decided to do Widdershins by Brooke Chenoweth Creel from Summer 2006 issue of Knitty. The yarn is Koigu KPPPM. I love this yarn, these colors, this pattern, this method and it's going so fast! Took me awhile to figure out how to do the cast on but like everyone thing else, once I figured it out, it was so easy.

Can't wait to finish these socks since the weather has definitely turned to wet, rainy fall in Seattle. Hope all your toes are getting toasty too! Tiennie

I had all kinds of problems with that 2nd magic cast on too! I'm not sure why, maybe you get lulled into a false sense of confidence? I think I've got it now. I love the colors in the basketweave sock. What kind of yarn is that? The basketweave looks really neat.

They're looking great Tiennie and I'm really enjoying seeing the cabled version of Widdershins (I'm knitting the plain version).

Hey Lady,
Your socks are gorgeous. I'm knitting the Widdershins except taking the easy route in Plain pattern.
You do great work!
