January 2011 Sock Pattern

Several knitters have asked to do a KAL with Cookie A’s Twinkle Toes sock pattern.  Cookie A knitted this sock on a episode of Knitty Gritty.  The pattern knits from the toe up with a neat lace pattern.  This pattern uses a sport weight yarn.  You will need about 350 yards and Size 4 needles.    I am knitting my pair with Brown Sheep Naturespun Sport Weight.   Here is a link to Twinkle Toes Sock Pattern by Cookie A  The pattern starts with a figure-8 cast on.   This cast on results in a nice rounded toe.  Here are links to figure-8 tutorials–Figure-8 Cast on with 2 Circulars   Figure-8 Cast On with Double Points    Figure-8 Cast On with Magic Loop (One long circular)  I think the best Figure-8 Cast on with double points is by Cookie A when she was on Knitty Gritty.    Of course, you can do whatever cast on you wish, but I think you should give this one a try.  It was before the Judy’s Magic Cast On.

Also, some of you have asked for the link to the hat that Sharon has been knitting.   The pattern is free may be found on Ravelry at Knot Cap

The snow has stopped and it just keeps getting colder and colder here in Rockville.
