I love socks

Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am a sock-aholic. I finally got around to trying to make some Alltogether socks on my USM. It took four tries for me to make a perfect pair, but I really do love them. Thank you Heidi for writing up such a cool tutorial. There is nothing better than not having any seams to sew up once you are done knitting them. I was so happy that I didn't have to sew anything that I embroidered all over them! I got my inspiration from some embroideries I saw on a pairs of Knucks on I''m still cleaning and learning how to use my new knitting machines and so far they seem to be in good working order. I'll keep you posted.

Your socks look great, I would never have thought of embroidering patterns on socks.
Doesn't Heidi come up with some good ideas - I tried her altogether sock and was surprised at how easy it was, even though I didn't use the bobby pins.

Thanks Susan. I don't know how you could do it without the pins! The reason I hate sewing up is I have a hard time determining where to pick my stitches from, so I love the pins. I appreciate the manual you sent me sooooo much. I still can't figure out how to use the punchcards properly but I am figuring it out slowly but surely.
