About Me:
My husband and I have been married for 43 happy years and live in the "country". We have 6 amazing children, 3 daughters and, 3 sons. All of them have wonderful life-partners with great in-laws!
These great couples gave us (so far) 8 grandchildren, 4 lovely girls and 4 handsome boys.
We have lots of "get-togethers" often, spontaneous!
Besides having fun with the kids and grandkids, we enjoy to travel across the USA in our motor home
What's your Ravelry ID (if you have one)? (www.ravelry.com)

I learned to knit (as well as crochet and embroidery) at my grandmother's knee in Europe, way back so long I cannot even remember when i started. As most knitters i have a rather large "stash", but alas, cannot resist all those beautiful colors and textures....

Ingrid, most of the time it is someone who is a newbie asking questions. It is too hard to explain things in the chat room to a newbie. I think KP should just forgo the chat room.

Thanks I understand the cast off now as that how i do the socks i don't use Kitchener to cast off.
I think that this is one of those when you do it then it fall in to place more than trying to visualize it when reading i am much more a visual than reading person lol Thanks again depending if i have to go out today i hope to have a go at one which i can start later, well have a couple of Christmas films to watch while knitting lol

These are great still a little unsure about the bind off, if you use the cast on tail how do you get it from the beginning to the end without just having a length of yarn i would have thought you cast off with the thread you are knitting with
I have saved the instructions so now it just working out the binding off part but it may come to me when i actually do it
Thanks again for this it great & will have a go at think may even start one in the next few days

Thank you so very much for the pattern i think i will make a start on one, even if i don't do it on DPs i can on circular but think it will be DPs as i prefer them
Most is clear only thing is how do you do your cast off when i do socks i have the stitches on 2 Dps then use the 3rd & knit a stitch from each of the 2 Dps together then slip over the next stitch so how do you do it with the stitches on 3 DPs
