In this episode of our video podcast, CAT demonstrates several methods for casting on for knitting socks from the toe up!  You’ll see Figure 8, Closed Toe, Invisible Provisional and Double Knitting cast-on.

We’ll be at  Rhinebeck this year so come by and say “hi”.  To psych yourself up for Rhinebeck go back and re-watch our episodes from Rhinebeck.

Help us out to raise money for our computer by bidding on a shawl which Kalinumba from Germany has generously offered to auction for us.

You can find the shawl here on Ebay or you can find it in Kalinumba’s store on ebay
The yarn was “Farbzauber” which was created and donated by Steffi and designed and knitted by Kalinumba

the instructions are to just decrease when she says increase that means to knit 1 more stitch after the s1 for every row until you get to the end.

I should have watched this video along time ago-I loved it.  I am fairly new to knitting and am teaching myself to knit sox.  I have Charlene's Sensational Knitted Shocks, but it's confusing me.  On page 35 under heel turn, she intructs to" rep rows 3 & 4 and inc 1 additional knit or purl st after the sl 1 until all side sts are worked".  Won't the inc cancel out my decreases??  Anyway, the heel is not decreasing like it should. 

Sorry for the letter instead of comment.

Thanks, Kathy

Love this video, it has been so helpful.  Wish she had a video to buy as it is so much better than trying to learn from a book. jburson
