but, as many others have noted, these things practically knit themselves!
I was SO IMPRESSED with this yarn. Having a large sock yarn stash (okay, a sock yarn stash that will last for several years), I probably wouldn't have purchased this if not for the Woolgirl club.
Since these are for an unnamed Christmas person, this was a quick "modeled" shot in the natural light at my jobjob.
I can't wait for the next kit!

I finally finished the socks, despite my pattern troubles (thanks, Jen)! Here they are:
Now I can start my "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" socks. I was so close to finishing the Waterfall socks that I wound the Halloween kit yarn last night!

I decided to go against the current and used the Marina Piccola pattern for my Waterfall yarn.
52 stitches on 2.75mm needles, this striped beautifully on sock one but developed a bit of a pool on the foot of sock two. But I loved the yarn - so sproingy and squooshy and the colours are so vivid - yummy!
Thanks for introducing me to Miss Babs, Woolgirl!
And this is why you should never try to do a photo shoot with a cat around...

I love the waterfall pattern but no matter what end I cast-on with, it just isnt coming out very nicely with the lovely yarn! Too many pools for my taste so I am frogging and am going to try a different pattern, maybe even for a pair of fingerless gloves instead of socks. I love the chocolate mint lipgloss and so does the fiance. There is no "but" there!

2nd time's a charm!
I knit these with my favourite 2x2 rib, 6 pattern repeats on the leg with no st.st. portion and I had just enough yarn! I really love the swirly stripe on the sole. It's also on the ribbing, just not so obvious.
1 down, 1 to go!

Has anyone out there modified the pattern for 2 circs yet? I am a relatively new sock knitter, and I am a little afraid that I will mess things all up if I simply try to divide all the stitches by 2 instead of by 3 or 4 for dpns. If someone has already converted the pattern, will you tell me what you did? Thanks for you help! Cindy S-- knitsabouttime.blogspot.com

I am a bad sock club member...... I just could not get the pattern to work to fit me so my daughter has just said after about the 5th attempt... "Mom, Just make me a pair since it's not working out for you." So, that is what I did. These are a 1x1 rib for the cuff and 2x2 for the leg of the sock; after the gusset I went back to the 2x2 rib all around the foot so that they would not twist around her foot and then into the toe decreases. I love the yarn and love the way the socks feel on my hands and my daughter is also in love with them and doesn't want to take them off. But, she does because it's just to warm yet to wear them. I can't wait for the next shipment to see if I might just be able to get the next pattern to work. I do love all the finished socks pictures. So, in the meantime I will knit my yarn from chewy spaghetti's holiday sock club while I wait for shipment number 2.

Oh my goodness!! My club package arrived today - don't ask - Canada Post must have some knitting fans working at the border!
I can't believe how gorgeous this yarn is, and all the goodies too... I haven't been so excited about a sock club in a long while, thanks so much Jen.
I have finished all my "obligation" socks and this one is on the needles!
