Advice please


It's that old casting on problem again! I really want to make some socks. I've only ever made one pair and they didn't fit. My mum was very pleased about this as they fit her perfectly. I also had real trouble doing the heels, they were both very different, but mum didn't seem to mind! So the thing is this, I really fancy doing some socks, but which pattern? What's your favourite ? I don't like lacy ones, but am very tempted with Monkey or Pomotamus from Knitty. But are they too hard? I also love the cable ones from Yarn Forward this time. Any ideas anyone?
Or should I just finish something off for once?
Haven't treated you to a picture of the glove lately either, so here you are. And I'm a bit cross with it, as the needles have just impaled my hand - drew blood they did. Sharp little things that they are!

is there a new Yarn forward Mag out? I love knitting socks but I like to use the magic loop method...the thought of all those needles and the sight of them even, scares me to death, also, I am quite a loose knitter so think they would slip out anyway. What's your problem with the casting on? I think we should start a little knitting group M...it would be fun eh?

oops...I answered this on your next post lol...the first socks I ever made were out of the 'one skein' book...lovely cables snuggly socks to wear instead of slippers.

I would go for Monkey. Certainly alot easier than Pomatomus and it knits up very quickly. The gloves look fab.
