Thanks for your knitting expertise regarding increases. I used M1 left increases and then started the lace pattern on the next row. After knitting a few rounds I found that Veronique was right – the increases are practically invisible in the ribbing. There were four increases in the same row and I made them all lean left. (I may do paired increases as suggested by Julia and Siow Chin for the second sock. Not so much for looks I guess, but for the feel of things being balanced.)
I’ve been working on my must-knit list for the fall:
Aran Cardigan, Knitting Nature
Asymmetrical Cardigan, Knitting Nature I was going to knit the hex coat but now I want to knit this pretty, textured cardi.
Juno, Rowan 40
Victoria, Kim Hargreaves My next project.
Sizzle, Wendy Bernard
Anna socks, Rowan 40 in progress
Canyon Hiking socks, Julia Trice for Knit Café knee highs with calf shaping
Log Cabin blanket, Mason Dixon Knitting I just got this book and I can’t believe how much I love it. I’m sure you’ve seen the gorgeous blankets knit by Cara and Terhi. I may even knit a dish or face cloth after seeing some over at Spitting Yarn.
Baby, Lace and Accessories – tbd.
What’s at the top of your must-knit list?

Anna is looking great! I’m still undecided with what to knit for Fall/Winter and am currently stuck with knitting accessories.

Lots of goodies on your list. I’m still totally undecided about my fall/winter knitting; too many gorgeous things to choose from! 😉

I like your list. Lets see… I’d like to knit (and already have the yarn for): Demi from Vintage Knits and EZ’s Seamless Hybrid out of Malabrigo for the husby, and several pair of socks. Oh, and finish up a UFO belted sewater I started for daughter #2 and is now going to fit daughter #3. There’s more I’d like to knit, but I’m keeping my options open. 🙂

Thanks for mentioning my blanket! I like your list – I’ve got many of them on my list too. 🙂

Anything with cables! 🙂 Socks and sweaters both!

I’m glad it worked out so well. For this project pairing may not matter (and how you increase probably won’t either), but it is nice to have options for when it counts!

I just read further and see that you’re thinking of knitting my canyon socks. Cool! (Don’t worry, I won’t hold you to it!) Are you going to do them in the original colors or mix it up? I’d love to see them in the teal as the main color. That would have been my preference for the book.

That’s quite a list you got there! So you bought a Kim Hargreaves kit? I’ve been drooling on those for a while… I’m sure you’ll keep us posted!

Oooh, that Kim hargreaves vest is going to be gorgeous! I love her stuff, just wish it came in pattern books rathr than the whole kit.

Victoria is so classy. I wonder which colour you got. As for myself, I’m at the stage where I can’t decide because I want to knit so many things!

I’m making Annas too — one finished, one half done. Because there’s no shaping in this pattern, you’ll definitely want to switch to a smaller needle size once you get to where your calf begins to narrow. Otherwise you’ll end up with bagginess in the lower leg and ankle.
