August Pattern

The August Sockamania pattern is now posted on the Google group and is called 'Little Flowers'.
We're actually on holiday this week and we're camping at church but I'm coming home every night and for the last two nights so have the girls as it's been terrential rain. I'm leaving at 9am and coming home at 11pm but came home at 10.30pm tonight so htought I'd use the extra half an hour to catch up on computer stuff. Last week was insanely busy too so if you've e-maield me and waiting for reply I'll answer e-mails this weekend.In the meantime, why not get started on these pretty summer socks?
Happy knitting,

Anni

Never done a provisional cas on but did a search and I am going to give it a try. I saw a cuff like this about a week ago and was wondering how they did it. Now I know and I am excited to be able to give it a try. I will look forward to the men's patterns and sock yarn. Never really gave it much thought in the KAL but have been wanting to make hubby some socks but could never find the right size. This is going to be fun.

These are soooo cute! I've already picked out my yarn and cast on--toes up. I'll figure out the cuff when I get there. Thanks, Anni!

I'm doing them toe up too. I've made it through one repeat of the flowers so far. Love the pattern!

very cute! Love that the sample is in varigated yarn so I can see that I do have something in my stash that I can use!

I'm glad you all like them. I've been wearing these socks the last couple of days camping. Very cold in the tent and I was only there during the day. Went home at night (we only camped 10 mins away). The yarn is the Sockamania PLUS August yarn.

I am doing the socks on two circular needles with 32 stitches on each needle. When I got to the heel, it says to knit 12 and then turn and purl 31. If I do that I will be knitting on the instep stitches. Is that right? Should I move enough stitches onto that needle? I am confused.

Oh joy. Guess what The Niece is getting for her birthday!

Besides which, I've been knitting a halterneck dress for our daughter, in GREY, have been sent some gorgeous sock yarn, &, having gotten to the point where a fitting of The Dress is REQUIRED, are ready for some colour therapy.

Thanks, Anni. Hope the camp went/goes well.
