Hi guys, I've just finished my second pair of socks from this designer, and I'm so inspired! I've been an avid sock knitter for a few years now, and I'm creating a bundle on Ravelry titled "I loved knitting these socks". These are obviously part of that bundle.

I am in no way affiliated with this designer and I happily paid the few euro these patterns costs. Both of these sock patterns have brought me so much joy. They are addictive to knit, because you really want to get to the next part and see what happens.
The first one I knit was called "Streepje Anders" (Different stripes), and I made a fraternal pair:

Socks - Streepje Anders


(Fraternal pair is where the main colour and contrast colours are switched between socks. So one has pink as the main colour, the other has purple. But it's still so obviously a matching pair!)

The other sock I just cast off yesterday. This pattern is called "Dotje...Sok" and it's a wonderful mix of some Fair Isle, mock cables and a German Short-row heel that is great for people with a high instep.

Sock - Dotje sok


I hope singing my praises is allowed, I really loved these two patterns and I just wanted to share. Heleen is wonderful, she designed both of these patterns for the Dutch Sock-knitters group, but the patterns are also available in English.

I was contemplating my next project, and I thought, "I know. What was that cute cardigan that spawned several hundred knit alongs a while back?" And then I fruitlessly wracked my brain. I remembered that some of those knit alongs were here, and there in the tags under sweaters, was someone asking for help on their Central Park Hoodie . 2007 was the year when everyone had to have one.

Eh, what's a decade between knitters?

I've just discovered the world of podcasts about knitting and other crafts on youtube. Right now I'm watching Arne and Carlos as well as The Grocery Girls.

Have you watched any podcasts or even made some yourself? What are your favorites?

I made a few different batches of leftover handspun yarns into a hat for a colleague at work.
(And used a silly big puppet as a model, he seems to enjoy it!)

Another pair of gloves (probably a bit gloved-out now so working on a hat and some socks next).

This yarn was dyed by my partner to make a scarf but there was loads left over - so has become gloves for a work colleague.

I am knitting my first sweater - Mountain High. Its a top down raglan.

I am just about at the point where I split off for the sleeves.
The pattern has markers in and I'm supposed to knit to the first sleeve marker, then it says "Backward loop CO 15 stitches, place sleeve on to waste yarn."
Do I count those new CO stitches as part of the sleeve? Or do I only put the previously existing stitches on waste yarn? (I'm thinking only previous stitches since the new CO ones will be the 'bottom' of the armpit?)

Also, I'm a bit worried the sleeve size for the size I'm doing is going to be too tight/small. Can I instead CO the # of stitches for the next size up (21) and just follow the sleeve directions for that size from there on out?
(pre sleeve split there is only a 1 stitch difference between the 2 sizes on the sleeves)(Does that make sense?)


Thanks!

Since I have a big box filled with sock yarns, and I'm somewhat allergic to them, I've decided to knit that stash down and declare 2017 Year of the Sock. (If this stuff hits my skin above the ankle, it itches.)
By the time this wonderful plan filled my mind I had not yet realised that I had knit 8 pairs of socks last year, making 2016 somewhat Year of the Sock as well. In any case....

This was a KAL from our Dutch Sock knitters group. The pattern was released especially for the month of December, and per the rules of the group you have to cast on in December and finish before the end of the next month (January in this case). I cast on December 24th, and wove in the last bits of yarn on Janury 12th.

It's a smaller size than I usually knit because they are going to a friend who didn't have such a great 2016. I hope these happy socks can cheer her up!
And because knitting two socks that are exactly the same, I added a bit of cheeky detail.

I have a question about a Loops & Threads brand yarn called Woolike.

This is the first time I am using this yarn and after knitting half a sock, I am finding the yarn to be creating a fuzzy halo-like finish which I think is being caused solely by handling the yarn.

This makes me wonder if this yarn is going to pill quickly and make me cry because the pattern is cabled like mad so we're talking a lot of time and effort because of the fiddly nature of massive cabling.

Anyway, my question is if anyone here has used this yarn and if so, what is your honest review and/or opinion about how well the finished socks will stand up over time, will they pill after one wear, or is this halo-like fuzzy finish the full extent of the 'wear'?

I actually like this fuzzy halo effect, so that is not an issue for me.

If nobody has used this yarn, where can I find written reviews, not a simple star rating?

Also, what is up with the recent posting of video clips that aren't related to knitting?

Dear people posting video clips: please stop.
