Bayerische

I'm all about the twisted stitches, lately.

They're so satisfying, you know? So tiny and orderly and lovely. I've found that when my brain is in danger of melting altogether and dribbling out my ears, a couple repeats of Bavarian-style twisted stitch patterns set everything right. All the little lines are so graceful and logical, so tidy, so totally devoid of chaos. What you see is precisely what you get - and it doesn't hurt, I suppose, that what you end up getting is almost always really, really beautiful.

The little ribbed cables aren't exactly correct for the style, maybe (as far as I can tell, Bavarian/Austrian/German twisted stitch motifs generally avoid crossing more than two stitches in any given twist or crossing), but they do look as though they fit right in. The front and back of this sock are symmetrical, with vertical motifs arranged in the Aran style - a central panel flanked by narrower mirrored motifs (too bad one never seems to have enough room to fit in as many motifs as she'd like), rather than the Bavarian style of many narrow motifs arranged symmetrically from side to side.

This sock went through several iterations, before settling on just the right combination of stitches and size and yarn:

The center sock is in the Blood Orange 2-ply I spun up, and the rightmost sock is from a 3-ply I spun from the Almost Solid Hyacinth. Both are pretty yarns, and both showed the stitches well enough (suprisingly well, in the case of the 2-ply) - texturally, that is. The variations in color, though, were too much competition for the very delicate pattern. Instead, I settled on a commercial yarn - Original Recipe Jawoll is almost ideal for this kind of thing. It's a little lighter than most sock yarns, allowing for a very small gauge (all the better to cram more motifs in, my dear); it's a firm, "round" 3-ply, showing off textures nicely; it comes in plenty of non-striping, non-patterning, non-pooling solid colors to let all the focus stay on the texture. The left-hand sock is in a grey Jawoll, in a pattern arrangement that almost made the cut - my main issue with it was in the long straightaways between the diamonds of the central pattern. They allowed too much lateral stretch for a nice fit, and I wasn't willing to sacrifice either of the other patterns - so I went back to a tightly compressed pattern (just a regular old lattice, with an extra twist at every crossing) and started knitting it in green. Perfect.

So, would you like to knit your own? Actually, answer this question first: is the thought of a 100-stitch sock appealing to you, or is it horrifying? Because we've got 96 stitches, cabled and twisted every round, right here in the Bayerische sock.

(Obviously, this is a work in progress, and has NOT been test-knit. I'm just making it up as I go, and sharing the charts for anyone who likes the motifs or would like to knit along. If I like the results at the end, I'll format the pattern nicely and put it up for free download)

Key:

means knit through the back loop.

means purl.

means a right-leaning cross. To do this without a cable needle, slip these two stitches to the right needle. Holding the left needle at the back of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the back of the first stitch slipped. Pull the right needle free of both stitches (the skipped stitch will be loose for just a second, here), and pick the loose stitch up from the front. Put it back on the left needle and knit each stitch through its back loop.

means a left-leaning cross. Slip these two stitches to the right needle. Holding the left needle at the front of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the front of the first stitch slipped. Pull the right needle free of both stitches and pick the loose stitch up from the back. Put it back on the left needle and knit each stitch through its back loop.

means a right-leaning twist. Slip these two stitches to the right needle. Holding the left needle at the back of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the back of the first stitch slipped. Pull the right needle free of both stitches and pick the loose stitch up from the front. Put it back on the left needle. K1tbl, p1.

means a left-leaning twist. Slip these two stitches to the right needle. Holding the left needle at the front of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the front of the first stitch slipped. Pull the right needle free of both stitches and pick the loose stitch up from the back. Put it back on the left needle. P1, k1tbl.

means a right-leaning 7-stitch ribbed cross. You can do this without a cable needle, though first-timers might just want to use one in the regular way to keep from dropping the loose stitches. Without a CN: slip these 7 stitches to the right-hand needle. Holding the left needle at the back of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the back of the first 4 stitches slipped. Draw the right needle free and pick the 3 loose stitches up from the front. Put them back on the left needle. (K1tbl, p1) 3 times, k1tbl.

means a left-leaning 7-stitch ribbed cross. Slip these 7 stitches to the right-hand needle. Holding the left needle at the front of the work, insert the tip of the left needle into the front of the first 3 stitches slipped. Draw the right needle free and pick the 4 loose stitches up from the back. Put them back on the left needle. (K1tbl, p1) 3 times, k1tbl.

The sock so far:

(Instructions are for a VERY stretchy sock 7" in circumference at the ankle (unstretched). It will probably comfortably fit anyone with an ankle up to 9.5" in circumference)

Ribbing:

With US 0 (2.0mm) needles, cast on 76 stitches. Join, being careful not to twist.

Round 1 (RS): *K1tbl, p1. Repeat from * to end.
Repeat Round 1 for 13 rounds more.

Round 15 (increase round): *(K1tbl, p1) 7 times. M1 purlwise. (K1tbl, m1 knitwise, p1, m1 purlwise) 2 times. (k1tbl, p1) 7 times. K1tbl, m1 knitwise. Purl into front and back of next stitch. M1 knitwise. K1tbl, m1 purlwise, p1, m1 knitwise, k1tbl, p1. Repeat from * for other half of sock. 20 stitches increased, 96 stitches total.

Leg:

Round 1: *K1tbl. Work Row 1 of Chart A across next 9 sts. K1tbl. Work Row 1 of Chart B across next 14 sts. K1tbl. Work Row 1 of Chart C across next 9 sts. K1tbl. Work Row 1 of Chart D across next 12 sts. Repeat from * for other half of sock.

Work as set until desired leg length is reached, ending with row 16 of Chart D.

Notes

  • If I haven't muddled things up too badly, the patterns should flow very neatly out of the ribbing.
  • Right now, I'm planning for Chart D to fall at the two sides of the sock, with Chart A falling at the front and back. Chart D will be split and dealt with when the plain knitting for the gussets and sole begins, after picking up stitches for the heel.
  • You really ought to work the crosses without a cable needle, as described. For one thing, it's about a million times faster - which matters when lots of crosses and twists happen every round. For another, I tend to think that some of the "crispness" of the twisted stitch is lost, the more fiddling and manipulating you do with it. It's cleaner to just make a couple swift movements with the two needles you're already working with.
  • It should be easy to keep track of everything after just one or two repeats of the pattern - the patterns are very logical, and when combined have plenty of self-checks: as is right and proper, all the repeats are a multiple of the same number of rows (8, in this case, obviously). So, you know that every second cross of the ribbed cable should put you at the beginning of the side panel pattern again. You know to work the ribbed cable crosses in the first place because they always accompany the second set of crosses in the second half of the lattice. Etc, etc.

Very pretty, but as knitting this would require concentration and silence granted only with the absence of children I'll just have to admire yours from afar.

Gracious! those are lovely and complex, and they are taunting me through the computer screen!
I sense some cabled knee-socks in my future (that's the only way for me to justify working 100st socks into my life...)

Very thoughtfully written and well photographed...of course the artistry of your knitted work is always sooooooooo pleasing to the eye and the senses. Is it easier to stay focused when doing "patterns?" I have a tendency to become easily bored with anything other than socks, hats and an occasional scarf. Bravo Eunns....

I love the design and the color together--very organic. Perhaps do pair #2 in Cherry Tree Hill SuperSolid Sock yarn and enter them in the contest? http://www.cherryyarn.com/designcpotlucksupersock.html

oh goodness, my brain is full!
all the knit stitches through the back loop...very clean, indeed. lovely and amazing. i love the macro feature, don't you?
so i'm wondering if you think up these stitch patterns or if you use a reference...? either way, the composite results are always a sight to behold.
food for thought, this sock. size 0's? 96 sts? not the speediest sock to knit, but definitely worth a try. and i'm always willing to try new things :)

This is a gorgeous sock, Eunny. If I had the pattern I would definitely make it -probably over and over. I love the crisp look of the tiny stitches.

So, I was so proud of myself, after lurking here - thinking that I was smart enough to design my own stuff. Then I read your most recent post.

I think I'll stick to patterns and save myself the heartache. I'm not a fan of swimming (in frog pond).

But, love your blog! You do amazing work.

So beautiful - and I love the crisp nature of twisted stitches. I think I would need to have an entire weekend with no distractions to sort the pattern out, but what a challenge!

Hi Keohinani! Hmm. These are all very old patterns - the side chart is unvented from a motif seen in a photograph of a stocking. I guess you could say that I thought up the center panel, but I don't think that'd be a very fair way to put it - it's such a simple variation on just a plain old lattice, and you can almost certainly find it in stitch dictionaries. The ribbed cables are, well, ribbed cables

Just a little math, and a little swatching to decide what I liked together. Instant-gratification "design" is okay by me :)

**LOVELY**

(Back to lurking)

Holy cow, I *love* these. And it's only a bit of a leg! Thanks so much for sharing all the pattern info, I'll have to get on these soon.

very crisp and elegant! I love this kind of yellowish/green, it sparkles.
great work in progress report, I wish I had the know how to knit along!

these are so lovely that i had to order the yarn for them immediately. this is exactly what i was looking for in a sock pattern. thank you for sharing. :)

First you inspire me to knit lace...mission accomplished (except for a discovery made during blocking that I would like to erase from memory)...now socks. It's intriguing, I might just have to give it a try. After the three little ones have hit the hay at night, that is. I might just relish a challenge on a slightly higher level than Uno or Candyland!

Ooh. Thank you for generously sharing your charts. I'm very tempted to knit those (or similar) socks.

Several months ago I started the Austrian patterned socks from Socks Socks Socks, but it wasn't worth fighting with the yarn. I usually like Patons Kroy, but I think using a superwash (which means it's prone to being splitty) doesn't mix well with such intricate twisted patterns.

Out of curiosity, can you share yardage (or estimated yardage) to knit a pair? I ask because I've never knit socks with this sort of patterning, and don't really have a good idea for how much more yarn they take than, say, ribbed socks. I have 4 gorgeous skeins of Harrisville Shetland Style (very similar to J&S jumper weight, though not actually Shetland wool) that might work beautifully for such a pattern. I was thinking of using it for colorwork socks or mittens, and I have 2 skeins of red and 2 of cream. But I'm wondering if 197 yards per sock would be enough for these, with an average 5" or 5" (pre-heel) leg.

I love it! It's a serial knitting pattern--how Dickensian.

Was für schöne Hosen!

Very beautiful, as always. I would like a pair of those. :)

Pretty color, too!

Wunderschön!

Beware of the Jawoll, though. I knit my husband a pair of socks at a very tight gauge, which he only used for bed socks, and they only lasted about a year and a half. I'm leery of their yarns now.

*small voice* wow. I can't say I am all over the pea green, but the pattern is lovely. I doubt if I would make somthing so complicated where people can't see them, but I do like those. you said they are 100 stiches around? won't that make them too loose and slouchy, or is the yarn fine enough that together with the stich pattern it squeezes into a reasonable size? I have skinny legs, but my socks are usually half that many stitches.

Eunny....you are an inspiration. I love reading your blog and viewing your pics! How much yardage of Jawoll is needed. I have two skeins in a lovely red. Will it be enough?

wow. thank you eunny. this should be right up my alley since i've been inadvertantely twisting stitches almost my entire career! they are very very beautiful!

I love it so far--I can't wait to see the finished product(and possibly a pattern :))

you are just crazy creative girl!

Beautiful! Thank you for the charts, it's very generous of you. I have just finished the Deep V-Argyle vest (pics on the blog this weekend, blocking is just finished), and a new Eunny project would be nice.

I'm in. I thought Mim's Eleanora socks would be next, but those cables... I can't resist cables.

Thank you. Thank you very, very much for taking the time and care to produce such an interesting, informative and challenging blog!

I'm so glad you put in chart B. I've been thinking about a sock almost entirely in chart B since I saw your pink sweater with the itty bitty ribbing and had not yet worked out how I was going to manage the ktbl parts.

But I might have to knit your sock first if I can find something thing enough.

My socks are frequently around 72, using size 0 needles and Trekking XXL for example. On the other hand if it were kind of bigger, I might be able to knit more of a knee sock, since I have wide calves.

very intriguing! I may have to spin up some sock yarn for this. thanks for sharing.

As usual, delightful!

I have Opal Uni sock yarn in almost the same color, could that be a sign?

Once again, you amaze me! Those are beautiful!

Ooohhh, very pretty! Me like cables! Nice, crisp twisted stitches. I might have to try these. Thank you so much for the instructions, thoughts, and the beautiful pictures.

I'm doing Nora Gaughan's "here and there" scarf from "scarf style" at the moment, it's like a flowing river of cables, and so elegant. I love the texture of cables, and the interest, so I'd love to knit your socks, and in that exact green! I was wondering if you were still planning on writing up the pattern for the "almost argyle socks" for us? I looked out for the pattern, but found nothing....... Thanks for everything you give us Eunny.

You are incredible. I too have children, so I can't knit such thinks. I barely spin and knit jersey... Anyway, this sock is beautiful.

Very challenging socks !!!

I will be needing to knit these, as a way of remembering my darling grandmother, Mutti, who cam from Vienna to UK in 1938, and died a couple of years ago (much mourned). I thnk she would have loved these, as do I.

Might do them for Mum's birthday, think she'd appreciate the thought.

Such beautiful socks! I'd definitely be interested in knitting a pair, if I had any solid colored sock yarn (everyone always gives me multicolors, which are beautiful, but usually not suited to much other than stockinette!). I love the color of the yarn you're using as well. I'll definitely be following along to see more, whether or not I manage to acquire some solid colored yarn.

The socks are sensational. I'm a real cable nut, and these make me want to trash all my UFO's and cast on (but since I have bits of two nearly finished sweaters-to-be all over the house, I might get a divorce if I start something new just now). But I will try them soon with Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in my stash. I think it is thin enough to get the needed gauge. I was mulling over an original sock design with tiny cables, but my imagination falls far short of yours. Thanks for posting the charts.

WOW, all of them are BEAUTIFUL! I do love the green pattern the best.

I can't wait until you post the whole pattern.

You are amazing, Eunny!

(I think I love you)

Gorgeous!!! I just found my next project! Thanks Eunny!

Oooh, I love pretty cabled socks! Not sure if I can fit them into my long list of knitting items right now...might have to, though. Thanks for sharing!

I'm sorely tempted. Truly, I am. I'll just print this o ut and add it to my notebook, where it will taunt me everytime I flip through the notebook.

WOW! Thanks for sharing. I'm not as fast, but I'm looking for the perfect yarn to use so I can "knit-a-long". I've knit socks for my husband that usualy requires 76 to 82 stitches around, so 100 should be ok...right?? :)

Brilliant...stunning!

Those are absolutely gorgeous. The thought of all that twisting on tiny needles is making my brain hurt just a little though, so methinks I'll just watch longingly from the sidelines.

Ah! A wonderfully challenging piece of knitting to try:) Thanks, I love it alot! Thanks for taking the time to share - so far at that, with us all. Ah, ya got me thinking of all these yarns to try it on...

Gorgeous. Absolutely. I can see myself attempting these this winter!

Yes a 96 stitch sock does horrify me... It is very beautiful and I will just admire.

i'm sitting here in my morning "fog", not feeling 100%, and the more i read, the more my head spins, and all i can think is "holy crap!".
you're such a talented knitter!

I am definitely in!!!! I love your intricate work. Especially, the cables and colorwork. Your work is soooooooo beautiful and I am so excited that you are sharing another one of your beautiful creations. You have inspired me to start designing my own patterns.

If I wasn't already working on the Austrian Patterned Knee Socks, I'd be very interested. As it is. I'm only on the foot of the first sock and I do want to have a pair.

I'm really enjoying twisted stitch knitting and working on such a tiny scale.

You're socks are lovely and I think your placement of the stitches works very well. I agree about the long stretches in the grey sock. Not quite the right look or feel.

Goodness. This might be the most beautiful sock EVER! Need to finish the two WIPsocks on the needles at the moment before I muster up enough courage to go at it.

Beautiful cables! I just love how you can concoct these motifs so creatively. I might just have to use some of these motifs on a pair of socks I've been meaning to knit as a gift. Great job, babe!

Those are great! I just got a nice haul of solid sock yarn - this may rise to the top of my to do list. I love twisted stitches in almost any form, and the simple yet intracate cables and twists you created are beautiful!

Oh, just gorgeous, Eunny! Yes, I would love to have the pattern, but, for now, will use what you have so graciously provided on your blog. You are so talented!
Sue J.

Ugh, gorgeous!
I've been meaning to make a small project for my mother with twisted Bavarian stitches (my family hails from Bavaria, nice touch, eh?) but cannot find adequate instructions for doing the stitch. I've found descriptions, but I need PICTURES. Can you provide a Bavarian stitch primer for us?
Thanks,
Jaws

Ugh, gorgeous!

Hi,
Sorry for the brain fart in my comments, you've obviously provided a primer, but my request for pix remains. . .
Thanks.

as always beautiful

um, i think i love you. because of the knitting. is that wrong?

As usual, amazing work! Makes me want to run right out and buy some sock yarn and some more technical books. I am so impressed by your ability to spot what makes your designs less than perfect and then immediately addressing those issues to achieve perfection. I hope to one day be half as cool.

How lovely and how kind to share. Your pursuit (and achievement) of excellence is amazing.

How is that the "not a sock knitter" writes some of the most beautiful sock patterns I've ever seen! If I ever get started on socks, I'll have to make these, too. Somehow, I just can't seem to get into knitting socks, no matter how beautiful and tempting the pattern. :-(

impressive!!! do you think this would ever translate for a pattern for clothing one day?

WOW
you are an inspiration! How do you design and knit all these beautiful things?!?! I am in awe.
:)

It's gorgeous! I'd definitely knit it... but probably only for one set of socks, and for myself or someone very worthy. :)

Can I just say, you are an amazing knitter. You always offer such great inspiration.

I'm not afraid of a 96 stitch sock and these are absolutely beautiful! I think I would go with commercial yarn (gasp!) also. Maybe the new Knitpicks Gloss would look nice...shut up!

No!!!! I would not like to knit my own! That right there is precisely the reason I have knit but one sock in my life, and a very small one at that. It was a traumatic experience. I love looking at Bayrisches Stricken, despise making the stuff. Especially in the round on very very tiny dpns. No bloody thank you! I'll stick to admiring your lovely photos. 'Course if you wanted to knit me a pair, that would be just fine. Actually, I have an old Trachtenheft from Austria with several pairs of socks as well as cardigans and pullis in that style, if you'd like any patterns.

I love Bavarian twisted stitch as well. So far, I've mostly used it on wool hats. It really retains the warmth and looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing the stitch patterns that you found. They are lovely.

Hi, Eunny. The twisted stitch socks are gorgeous! I have a question about the stitches. When you say (for example) to slip 7 stitches to the right needle, does that mean (a) slip them one at a time, (b) slip them all together as one, and (c) in either event, are you slipping knitwise or purlwise?

Thank you for posting the charts. This is going to go on my To Do list, as soon as I get the two pairs of really simple socks on which I am working off of my needles. Oh, and my socks for Sock Wars.

It's going to be a VERY good Socktoberfest, I have the feeling.

I second the question about slipping -- are you slipping knitwise or purlwise?

Those are really great looking socks! I'll have to dig up some appropriate yarn to knit along. But first, what gauge do you have? It would be a big help so I can adjust to fit. (My ankles are much larger than 9.5 inches.) Thanks for all the help and inspiration you give us!

I haven't yet broken out the 0s, although I've done plenty on the 1s. I am going to try to find time to dig through the stash to see if I have anything that would work. These are so GORGEOUS. But, then again, so is everything you do. I don't know whether to love you, or hate you.

You are quite possibly my most favorite-est person in the world right now!!!!

I started Shedir (thanks Knitty!) last night and the swatch took for-freakin-ever. I was _not_ looking forward to doing the whole hat, but being sort of insane and occasionally delusional, I proceeded with the ribbing rows.

THEN!

This morning I go to see what you have to say!

And I looked and I saw! (sorry, Dr. Seuss)

Wow. I think I love you. I had heard of the mythical beast known as That Crazy Cabling with No Cable Needle, but I did not know what it looked like. Wow.

Shedir is going to fly!!!

Thank you thank you thank you.

(and, you know, just by the way, your socks and your homespun are so beautiful. Thank you for sharing those as well.)

Wow...
Theses stitches are the most amazing things i have seen in a long time : like wheat under the wind !!!

Stunning as always, thank you for sharing the charts i will have to look out for some yarn to make these. 100 st eh? I'm going to need some smaller needles :-)

Those are really lovely! Looks like I'm going to have to go out and buy some more solid colored sock yarn....

Thank you for being so generous with your patterns.

Really Eunny (and when I say 'Eunny" I mean gorgeous in a way that only Eunny can do.

THe instructions seem very straightforward except, what was the 1st thing again? lol

Eunny, I just want to thank you for writing "one" and following it up with "she." You are my knitting and grammar heroine.

And the socks are fab.

Simply terrific

I'd been browsing new blogs this week and was starting too feel very inadequate as a knitter. I'm working on a fairly simple sweater & thought of finally picking up your stole pattern. When I saw this, I changed plans. I even bust out a magic loop instead of my beloved dpn's.

Working in Lorna's on US0 (wish they were as sharp as my dpn's). So far so good. The chart flows perfectly from the ribs. Now if I'd stop watching CSI and pay full attention to this, I'd be going a bit faster. I'll let you know how it goes after a repeat or two :-)

Eunny,

As always just beautiful!

Thanks for being so generous with your instruction (for this and all of the other wonderfully helpful tutorials you have created) and those lovely patterns.

(Cue the chorus) Simply Beautiful! I am in awe of your stellar work and can only aspire to one day achieve your skill level.

Yes, I absolutely do want to knit my own! You're headed towards a stunning pair of socks there. Just wondering when I'll have time, but it could certainly be an on-(and on and on)going project...

I adore your cable patterns! What do you use for your charts? Did you make up your own symbols, or do you use a design program?

I sure love to see Eunny knit. What a beautiful pattern. I am tempted to knit "deine bayerischen Socken", BUT keeping in mind those 96 stitches I have to ask myself if there will ever be a second sock ...

Heh, I don't think a little Chaos in one's life is a bad thing. ;) Gorgeous socks!

i'd love to try your pattern - perhaps you've answered this already, but can you post the yardage of jawoll to buy? many thanks -

Love it! Please, please post the pattern when it's finished, these are gorgeous. :)

lol, that's what I get for posting while tipsy... most of the pattern is already there. :)

Love it!!!! I think that I have to try it out, maybe... ;) But I need the green yarn!!! :p
Hugs...
Bim in Sweden

Oh. My. God! I LOVE them! I don't know if I'm up to the challenge, but I'm certainly willing to try. I've been knitting less than a year, and taught myself from a book (Debbie Stoller's Stitch and Bitch). Trying something challenging is the way I have continued to learn new things, so I'm not averse to trying! Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful pattern, Eunny! Your blog is one of my favorites - full of information, and great pics of gorgeous knits!

These are serious and gorgeous socks!!

Stunning. You did it again.

Comme d'habitude je découvre avec plaisir votre blog , Madame vous faites des tricots magnifiques, dommage je ne parle pas Anglais. Bravo

Eunny, I just followed a link to these socks from the LJ Knitting community, and I have to tell you that looking over this pattern makes me feel drunk. Like when you fall in love, drunk. My arms are tingly and my heart is beating fast. I can't wait to get this other sock off my needles so I can put all my Christmas projects on hold while I cast on for this. Oh I'm not kidding, either.

Oh my goodness... words fail me. That is an *incredible* sock, and all that twisted rib probably means it's nice and stretchy, too! I want, I want, I want. ;-)

Oh my. I adore these. Love, love, love, love, LOVE them. I want to drop everything I am working on and work on these, because they are so lovely.

*swoon*

Beautiful but not for me, I am afraid...

96 stitches?!!!! Aaaaaargh! LOL

Absolutely the most beautiful pattern I've ever made!
Thanks, Arja


Those socks are beautiful.

You seem to have a well of arcane and incredibly technical knitting knowledge, reading your blog is an education in itself. I'd like to progress beyond my average Barnes & Noble level of knitting - do you have any books you could recommend? I'm interested in both the background/origins of knitting and in advanced techniques.

I'd really appreciate any suggestions :)

So lovely. Actually beyond gorgeous. And, thank you, Eunny, for sharing so much!

Beautiful. I would love the pattern when you have formatted it. I don't trust myself with just graphs.

I adore these socks, but had trouble printing the pattern. Any hope that a more formal pattern will be available soon?

These are the most beautiful socks I have ever seen. I have been looking for a more challenging pattern and this is it. Just have to finish the second sock I have OTN now and then YOURS! Please, please please let us know when your formal pattern is ready.

Oh WOW !!!
Your Knitting is just So Perfect!!!!!

I LOVE those twists and cables...and Your Yarn... Oh My !!!!

Voulez-vous pratiquer votre français ?
Je tiens simplement à vous dire que vous avez beaucoup de talent et du goût.

Hi again,
I am wondering how to purl into the front and the back of the stitch in the increasing row. Beautiful socks by the way, my aunt is going to love them!

Cheers,

Matt.

These are amazing! I am so tempted, but afraid I might be too much a novice. I will bookmark for when I am feeling brave!

It's quarter to 8am here in New Zealand and I should be getting ready for work... but wanted to ask if there yet a pdf of the Bayerische socks? I'm looking for a new knitting challenge!
