Another super exciting fun knitblog

  • November Knit Goals

    I'm prone to being a scatterbrain, so I try to make a short list of things to accomplish each month (lest I have 27 different non matching socks).

    Same as last month: Sleep more. Study more. Knit more. Sleep more.

Toe Up Sock Class. Coming soon to a Stitch near you. If you live near Georgetown.

Posted by Amber on January 26, 2009

Now that I’ve taught a few classes, I have better ideas about what I want to do for class. Namely, my sock classes will have plain stockinette option OR stitch pattern of my choice, if you think a stockinette sock would be too boring. But what is my stitch pattern of choice?

Flame Chevron:

Track of the Turtle II:

Flying Chevron:

If you were taking a toe-up DPN sock class, which would you want to knit?

    I guess it would depend on what level knitter I am and how much confidence I have. Maybe Track of the Turtle II?

    I like track of the turtle too.

    I like the turtle one too!

  4. I’d choose Flame Chevron. I think it would make a gorgeous sock and the pattern looks simple enough to memorize quickly.

    Turtle all the way! The first one looks too much like Pomotomus (spelling is wrong i know)and the third is too lacy and your foot gets cold (imo.) Turtle II is pretty and not too lacy. :)

    Flame chevron. If I’m a beginner, I want something impressive yet simple enough for you to be able to convince me that I could do it during a class.

  7. I really like the Flying Chevron pattern.
