Hi! I'm Sarah (prizebird on Ravelry) and I'm using Knit One Crochet Too Crock O Dye in 535 Green from my stash. I haven't yet used a sock yarn with silk content so I'm looking forward to it!
Hi - I'm Lesley (leley on Ravelry). It's time I made some socks for myself so I'm in and will work toe up....
Yikes, ya'll. I'm Carol in Kabul, Afghanistan, and I'm very excited about this project. I ordered several of the less variegated Tosh Sock yarns last night form the states, so I hope my new stash gets here by the start date. I want to keep up!
Hello, I'm Judy B, aka "Gumbiegal", from SE Wisconsin. It's time to replenish my sock drawer for the upcoming Winter months. The Caret & Chevron Socks will be the first of a few pairs that I intend to knit this Fall. The yarn is ordered, needles are ready, and I'm "patiently" waiting for the yarn delivery.

Hi, I'm Jane. Have made only 2 pairs of socks using simple pattern, so am up for this challenge! I have some dark green Happy Feet stashe, but am wondering if a lighter color would show the pattern better. Any thoughts on that?
Hello: I´m Gry, (gryet on Ravelry) and the first pair I will knit in a yarn called Falk, from Dalegarn, Norway and the color is a delicious dark red #4227. Then I guess I´m hooked...
My name is Perri. I live in Georgia. Recently, on a fall vacation, I purchased some Malabrigo sock yarn from Black Mountain Yarn Shop in Black Mountain, North Carolina. If you are ever in Black Mountain, it goes without saying, you must visit them. They are great! It's like visiting family. Anyway, my color is 800 Tiziano Red.
I'm Bonita from California and I'm using Lion Brand Sock Ease in Green Apple. I have only knitted a basic sock pattern once but I'm up for the challenge.
Hi! I'm Judy and I have finally found the perfect pattern to use the beautiful yarn that has been in my stash for several months. So excited to finally use it. This is the first time I have joined a knit along. Hoping I can keep up!
Kathleen, I am a little confused.... I am reading thru the pattern for the Toe-Up version, and in the second paragraph (under Toe-Up) it says, "Work the first half and second half short-rows as for the toe-up sock heel until 1 wrapped st.... should't it read " Work the first half and second half short rows as for the TOP DOWN sock heel? Perhaps I am misunderstanding something? Thanks, Judy
Wow, I watched the voting and it was easy to see, which sock pattern was getting all the votes. I am making these socks for my dear friend Carol, who lives in Ann Arbor, MI. She loves socks and especially socks that I make. I will decide on my yarn in a few days.
This is my first knit-along, and I'm really excited. I'm on Ravelry (kmt62), and I'll be using Jojoland Melody for this project. Looking forward to swatching this weekend! I need to study the pattern a bit more, as I'm not sure exactly which method I'm going to use. I've never done the toes-up version, so I might be adventurous :-)
This is María from Spain, Europe. It is my first KAL and Will be my first pair of socks.
I will use Prima Merino (100% Merino wool) in a lovely dark grey colour. Do you Think It will be suitable?
No sure of toe up or down version. Any recommendation?
Delighted with this proyect. Thank you!
