That would be most kind @Ellabella  :thumbsup:

eta Just followed your link to the pattern on Ravelry. That's the identical yarn that I used to knit my first pair of socks.
Well, not very Very first because I knitted a pair of cotton socks to wear when we did trampolining at school.

I like the sheep sock pattern that you linked to @Celia.  I think I'll probably do those as a stocking stuffer for one of my daughters (once I finish my current pair). Thank you :)

I'm afraid I need to jump ship forr a while.  I walked the doggies this morning, and have found myself in dire need of a hat...

I hate hats, and they look awful on me, but my head and ears were freezing while I was walking.

See you when the hat is done girls!  :rolleyes:

If you search Debbie Bliss pompom hat @b15erk you should find a cable knit hat.  I've knitted a few of these in Aran weight yarn and they're a nice straightforward knit.

It’s not a cable pattern but the Arteixan hat is a nice textured hat pattern and knits up very quickly @b15erk .

After the third attempt I’ve managed to make a good start on my socks.  It took me a while to get used to the much smaller needles (my previous practice effort was using Aran scrap wool and larger needles) - I kept thinking I was somehow dropping stitches after the cast on but I think I’ve realised now that I was inadvertently pulling the end stitches too tight  as I was arranging for taat magic loop and so had knitted two together by mistake. Hopefully I will improve my technique with practice.

I’ve completed the ribbing and am knitting the “leg” bit of the socks now.

I appear to have misread the pattern.  12cm not 12”.  Oh well, I’m going to have long socks.

I don’t think the knitting police are free at the moment  :thumbsup:

 :devil: I took care of them. They had the audacity to suggest that knitting machines and looms weren't "real" knitting. I set them straight. Straight into a large trunk dropped into the Pacific Ocean.  :perfect10:

Yes please ma'am. I'm wanting a few and that I could definitely manage on one of the round knitting looms. My cat toys were very successful. The round looms are definitely within my skill set.  :thumbsup:

I have finished the first of the essential cable socks, but it is too big.  Think I’ll use a smaller needle for the next one… well , the next two.
