Waffles Anyone?


I've started a new pair of socks. This is the GCNI/Mohair yarn that I spun into a 3 ply. Since I wanted to compare how a 2 ply yarn and a 3 ply yarn looked knitted up, I decided to knit this pair of socks in the waffle stitch pattern too. (A month or so ago I knitted some pink and blue stripey GCNI/Mohair 2 ply into waffle socks - this is what I'm comparing.) The yarn is a heavy fingering weight or possibly a sport weight yarn so I'm knitting it on US 2's, which I think are 2.75 mm (I can't remember). I'm halfway through the heel flap now so these socks are zipping along pretty quickly. The stitch pattern is the one from the Blueberry Waffle Socks, but I've adjusted the rest of the sock to my own gauge.

If things look a little different this morning, that's because I'm trying Flickr as my photo hosting site today. I'm less than 500 people away from getting into Ravelry and I think I'll probably get my invite later this week if they keep doing invites at the rate they have been. (Flickr and Ravelry are linked somehow so you can just click to add pictures.) I'm very excited about seeing what's in there. I will probably just add new stuff to Ravelry and not enter previous projects - at least not at first. We'll see, who knows what I'll do when I actually see it. If you click the link to Ravelry, they do have a bunch of screen shots of the site so you can kind of see what's in there.

Pattern and color are great. What I'm really impressed with is your spun yarn. I'm still primarily turning out DK weight at the lightest. Spinning some of Abby's sock batts right now that appear to be spinning out thinner than my typical single. We shall see.

is there a huge difference in the 2 and 3 ply knitted up? Curious. Love the waffle pattern, the color is yummy too. These socks just look like they would be perfect for a casual comfy day--

be *very* careful what you wish for with Ravelry...it's HIGHLY addictive.

But I must also mention *very* helpful. It's great to be able to pull up a pattern and see samples of who has knitted it, with what yarn and read their comments on the project.

Had a great time meeting your mom this weekend for our mini-MS3 knitting meetup. :)

Careful... Ravelry is addictive! Pixie is right. (It is fun, tho.) ^.~

I like the way the socks are looking. Hope you're pleased with them!

can't believe you're not on ravelry yet, you'd think they'd let u jump the queue considering how popular MS3 has been this year! I'll keep an eye for you and fiend you.

I think you choice of yarn makes your waffles a tinibit more interesting than the original. I am inspired by it, anyway. Great work, well done :)
See you in Ravelryland :D

Ravelry is like potato chips, once you put one project in you'll find you just can't stop. :D

The waffles look great, lovely yarn. You'll like Ravelry, I've been in for about 3 wks now. I'll be watching for you and we can be "friends." But just be ready to spend lots of time there and adding tons of stuff to your list of "must knit" projects. :)

You will enjoy Ravelry but it does cut into my knitting time. Probably is part of the reason I am still on Clue 2.

Lovely new waffles :)

I find it completely ironic that the MS3 is the most posted pattern on Ravelry yet it's designer is still in the queue! At least it's clear they aren't playing favorites!

Hope you're in real soon Melanie!

Melanie, as of today (8/5/07), you should have received your Ravelry invitation. If it's not in your inbox, look in your spam folder in case AOL put it there.
