We've been knitting along on our socks for a week now. We have slow starters and speedy knitters. We have socks!!

Here's her report: "Chose the Dragonfly Socks from Pattern was written as top down, so inverted dragonfly pattern to work as toe up. Have about 1-1/2 to 2” before beginning heel. Here is where tiny feet would be a plus!"

"When moving from short rows of toe and heel I needed to pick up stitches to avoid getting a hole. I just knit the picked up stitch together with another on the next row."   [caption id="attachment_3408" align="alignleft" width="150"]Kjirstine, Customer Service Manager Kjirstine, Customer Service Manager[/caption] [caption id="attachment_3444" align="aligncenter" width="150"]Added a little cable!

I am incorporating the pattern Socks on a PlaneWhite socks seemed too boring, so a little cable twist gives me more to think about."   [caption id="attachment_3432" align="alignleft" width="150"]Melissa, Social Media Melissa, Social Media[/caption] [caption id="attachment_3446" align="aligncenter" width="150"]Ready to cast on Ready to cast on[/caption]   Melissa is enjoying some time away with her family, but she plans to start soon. She says " I'm on vacation and then casting on.   Since I"m working worsted I think I"ll finish no problem during the KAL."

Which heel to choose?[/caption]   Kelley is also ready to do her heel! Her update is: " I am ready to turn my heels. I am not sure if I will do the short row heel or pick another heel from a different pattern. I decided to do a pattern on the top of my socks. It is a broken rib pattern which has a 2 stitch repeat + 1. Row 1 - knit across row. Row 2 - P1 K1, P1 across row." Hope you are knitting along with us and we'd love to see your progress on our Ravelry Thread or find us on Facebook and Pinterest.
