Wanted to share

I just wanted to share a picture of the socks and cell phone case I just finished. The socks are the second pair that I have ever knitted so there are a few mistakes in them lol. They are knitted with Patons Classic Wool. I'm really enjoying knitting socks, I'm working on a baby pair right now. The cell phone case is made of the same wool as the socks and felted. I used the pattern at the following link. It's actually an iPod case but works for my cell phone.

Good job, Cherbo! I love knitting socks too. Yours look yummy. I bought some yarn at elann.com that I want to turn into a pair of supersoft socks for me and some gloves for my mother. A lavender mix of angora and silk (Mom's gloves, which I just started last night) and a teal mix of angora and cashmere.

cherbo, those are great! Good job. I've never felted before, but I'm going to read about it and try something. Was the phone holder easy for a first project?

They are lovely, Cherbo! I love the color. A friend of mine used Paton's Classic Wool in beige to try KoolAid dyeing and it turned out very nicely. We did a mini workshop on it in my kitchen. It was pretty amusing seeing that what we were cooking was... wool :)

Socks are my favorite thing to knit, too.

These are fun to make and felt:

I posted them on another message here. I have made several pair of them for relatives (and myself) and now get requests. They are very yummy and cozy.

Diane, I have been thinking about making the fuzzy feet slippers. Guess I need to go shopping for some more wool.

Cherbo, those socks are nice! You did a great job for your second pair. I'm on my 5th pair and on every pair there's something, you know where you have to pick up the stitches for the heel? I still can't get that to look perfect, maybe someday I will. That felted cell phone case is so cute! I have done some felting, made mittens and purses - it's really fun to see how they turn out, isn't it? Keep up the good work.

Those socks came out great!

I made those fuzzy feet "socks" - they are the warmest slippers I have ever had. I did lengthen the cuff a bit so that they came up over my ankles. I used the Lamb's Pride and they felted beautifully. One thing I would recommend is to take a blunt needle and some yarn and weave it through any holes around the gusset - they felted closed quite nicely - I did this on one but not the other. The one I didn't do this on does have a wee hole, but the slipper is still cozy!

These are great. I do have a question how do you put pics on the forum. They are great

Nice socks! I love knitting socks and I'm always on the hunt for good new yarns. While I know that the little errors seem glaring to you, I certainly couldn't see anything noticeably wrong with them. The cell phone case is too cute!
