Uncle Socks


This is one of the Guitar man socks I'm making for my uncle for his birthday. I've done 6 repeats so far. There are 10 all together. I will be doing 11 because I was told that this yarn shrinks 10%. I'm really liking knitting these. It goes pretty quickly. There are 12 rows to each pattern repeat, I can usually do 2 in one sitting. The yarn is nice to work with too. I'm using Knitpicks Essential. Well thats about it. See ya tomorrow.
Ciao!

I just love those....Between you an Diane, I am going to have to get busy with my knitting and learn how to make socks. But then again she says they are addictive.

Hi Kelly I wouldn't do an extra repeat......just extend the toe a little. I am afraid that the sock my be too big with the extra rows for the repeat.
Diane I hope I am not too late.
