Looking for the extraordinary in the everyday
Thank you, Christine, for sharing your wonderful patterns with us :) You are the greatest!Carolyn GeoffreyTexas, U.S.A.
Thank you, you're very welcome! xx
Help, I have read your book and it has reignited my determination to knit socks. But can't get my brain around how to measure the foot. Do I measure the foot at the widest point?
Yes, measure around the ball of your foot and that will give you the right size for your stitch calculation :-) xx
Thank You, the only person who can write a sock pattern which I can understand.
Phew, that's lucky! The world could have missed out on another sock knitter! :-) xx
Yay, have just this minute finished my first pair of socks ...thank you so much for the wonderfully clear instructions, comments and photos .... definitely couldn't have done it without you! Jean
That's great to hear, thank you! xx
Christine, have you considered creating a video of your basic sock pattern for those of us who are visual learners? I have your book, but it would be really great if there was also a video that I could follow along as I attempt my first pair of knitted socks. I'm a very beginner knitter...
Yes, that's my plan for next year - the first videos will be with the next sock tutorial that will be coming out in January and then I'll be adding them to the Sockalong tutorials during the year :-) xx
Wonderful! Can't wait to see it :) You are the greatest, Christine!
Hi Christine,Could you please explain how to make the toe cast off (kitchener stitch) without ending up with ears. I have looked at several online but cannot seem to understand.All the best for 2017 Peter x
If you miss out the set-up stitches at the beginning that should avoid the stitches at that end - you're already doing the "without ears" part at the other end. I usually sew my end in so that it tucks the last stitch down and you don't get an "ear". They do disappear with wear and washing too. Hope that helps, and all the best to you too! Xx
Thank you winwinck mum for he split glove pattern, unfortunately I don't understand how to join the separate rib piece to the mitten. Help😖
Hi Gail, I've replied to the comment that you left about this on the Split Mittens pattern page - if you still don't understand, do you want to email me and I'll see if I can help you? firstname.lastname@example.org xx
