Sock Progress!

My life has been busy, this past week, so this is my first post.  I had declared that I would knit just one argyle sock, but I'm so used to knitting two at a time that I went ahead and prepared for two.  I'm using Dale Baby Ull in five colors. The pattern I'm using is by Connie Mallette, from the TKGA website.


As the opening ceremonies began (well done, eh?), I wound bobbins, then cast on, and knit the top ribbing - one color, easy!  On the other hand setting the first pattern row is always hard for me, as it requires lots of counting, but I only had to frog and reknit one row on one sock.  I didn't have as much time to knit over this past week as I'd hoped, but have made more progress over the weekend, while watching NBC's Olympic coverage in the evening.

I've learned how to change yarns without leaving holes (I only have one to fix later).  However, keeping the gauge of the single color stitches the same as the other segments is challenging.  I'll just keep at it until I finish this race!

Great looking Argyle socks. How far down are they knit flat?

Thanks. They're knit flat down to the heel flap. I'm almost there - but may have to go back to just knitting one, to get at least one finished.
