Is this the first attempt at crocheted socks in this KAL/CAL?
I commenced these socks on Oct 1 - and just have to do the toe of the first one. The yarn is 'Four Seasons Michaela' and I love how the diagonal stripes have magically appeared on the leg.
I did a sideways black-loop cuff which I much prefer to the usual front post/back post cuff. The stretch is a lot better as well. I'm started using a pattern, but I have changed so much of it that it doesn't bear telling you which pattern I'm not really using.
For those who have not done a crochet sock before, you might not know that the stretch of a knitted sock is just not there, so you have to make the sock a lot wider at the leg so it will go over your foot. I think a lot of people were alarmed at my huge sock at SnB the other night!
