Kay - From the Back Yard

Love the stripey socks! And thanks for the neat tutorial, too.


I am endlessly amused by those small things that make a big difference, too. I knit socks top down, and when I pick up stitches for the gusset, I always knit them through the back loop so it twists the stitches prettily. No one else notices it, but it amuses me no end. It's good to be easily entertained! Beautiful socks, jogless or no jogless.


Very Nice! I use the same *knit one row in new color before purling* in sweater applications but never thought to do that with socks....and yours came out very VERY nice!


Gorgeous socks and great pictorial. And it's playing with the little details that keep things from getting boring.


Excellent tip. I'll have to consider using that on the next pair of stripy socks which are coming up very soon.


Smart-looking stripes! And, smart tutorial! Thanks!

I love the stripes and you did a great job. I'm not great at the striping thing and prefer the self striping yarns. This colour combination is fabulous!


Hi - I've only just come across your blog - I am a sock-o-holic . . . . !

Thanks for the top tips about stripes, very simple, very effective and never thought of it :o)
