Hubbinator! What a hoot! That just cracked me up!


I love your sidewinders. They're next on my list. I was a little leary of using my socks that rock in medium weight but now I may just have to give it go.


I love your second Sidewinders. Very pretty yarn too. And the hubbinator's socks look great. I still really like that yarn.


You are a genius! I love the idea of no seam under the toes. I have yet to knit my first pair, though. I may brashly try to jump right to your modification. I may have lots of questions.


Maia! This is so ingenious -- I really love how your mind works. I'm also happy to hear that tweaking the numbers with your stitch and row ratios created a well fitting sock. This will help other knitters who want to sub different gauge yarns. I've so enjoyed watching you conquer and improve the Sidewinders for your yarn, feet, and knitting style!


All the socks are looking great! As with me, next up on my sock needles are socks for my Dale. I love the Merlin you're using and the colour is awesome.


These are fantastic! Mind if I link?


"Heavy metal gestures" LOL!

Cool socks! :)


Nona linked to you! How cool is that?


And you got rid of the tedious provisional cast on! Brilliant!


Very nice!


How awesome! I just finished my first Sidewinder, I'm definitely trying this cast-on for the next pair! Now I need to get another set of size 2s...
