Finally finished Queen Kahuna, Crazy Toe and Heel Socks. I love the way they look. I wanted the heel to be red as well, but wasnt sure when to change the color. I used Bernat Sox Yarn, which I really like working with, but it is now discontinued. wah wah A few sites still sale it (www.herrschners.com). I used a US 2 (Addis) needles to knit these babies up. I'm so proud of my accomplishments. Took me forever and a day to get them done, but well work knitting each and every stitch. I really made a mess of the pattern on the leg og the sock (the white portion) . The lace rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks, on page 44. The next go around I will only knit when I can focus using a pattern. :-)

My progress on my first Crazy Toe and Heel sock. I'm using Bernat Sox yarn, Red (#0705) Price: $1.27, per 50 gr skein. A very good price and it is knitting up nice. Off to change the color to white. My goal is to have the toe, heel and ribbing red and the rest of the sock white.

Here are the finished socks. This is one project I'm glad I'm finished with. I made these socks on 2 circulars following the 2 socks on 2 circulars by Nenah Galati. I used Cervinia Cervinia Calzetteria yarn from www.smileysyarn.com Have no clue what my next product will be.

My first try at two socks on two circulars. I'm using the video by Nenah Galati. The heel of the sock on the left is flipped noticed once I posted, but they both are the same size. I love working on circulars. I doubt if I go back to dpns (double pointed needles). For the socks I'm using Cervinia Calzetteria sock yarn from www.smileysyarns.com the color is charcoal heather grey. I'm so proud of my success. I should be finished very soon.
