Smooth cotton ( very fine weave) in white set of 6. I'm hard on socks: extra hot water ( sanitary cycle) I go sock footed around the...

    Does anyone else have a separate basket for odd socks? I started one of these about 5 years ago, and it has really helped keep the sock drawers organized. Before, I just threw the leftover socks in the drawer and eventually would just end up with a big messy drawer filled with mis-matched...

    One of my goals for 2009 is to learn to knit socks. Is using circular knitting needles easier than using 4 smaller (don't know what the terminology for these needles are) needles? I am a visual person so any diagrams would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    I've haven't done a pair of socks for years(when I was 12 and my Granny had to turn the heel)and those I did with 4 needles but a knitting friend told me recently that it is common now to use 5 needles as it aids in heel turning.Do any of you use 5 needles-is it more cumbersome-and does it help...

    I LOVE this pattern! It's called "Monkey" by Cookie A. (for the knitters, I did the no-purling felt like cheating lol). The yarn is Trekking 122 and the colors remind me of dds sock monkey so I thought it appropriate for the Monkey sock pattern. They worked up very quickly! I...
