I’d say that too if I didn’t know that this dilly little piece of cardboard contains all the info one needs to knit that sock. I carry it around with me at all times in my wallet. Which, in fact, is where the cardboard originally came from. HANDY!

    *runs away screaming and tearing her hair*
    That’s insane! I can’t wait to see what genius wins! :-)
    Like those socks.

  2. Sylvia says:

    Your pattern is very similar to mine, nearly identical shorthand too! One question — are your socks symmetrical or left & right?

    Co#2 72s, #1:32r 2×2, 80rOA, 37/35 14sl, h23, pu14, 72s 66r, L&R 56/40/28/12.

    I COMPLETELY understand your chicken scratches, as they look just like some of my patterns. Except mine are written on post-its. But I don’t know enough about knitting socks to rewrite it. I have only knit ONE baby sock. Not one pair, ONE sock! :)Guess I need to force myself to learn to make a pair!

    ahh – the joy of math mysteries! if a blogger, knitting at 25 rpm leaves Penn Station heading westward at a rate to 50 mph, and another blogger knitting at 18 rpm leaves Chicago heading eastward at a rate of 65 mph, which one will drop a stitch first?

  5. Lacy says:

    After the winner is announced….will you reveal the sock pattern for those of us that are chicken scratch challenged? Please!

  6. Bonne Marie says:

    The *Winning* Pattern will be posted for the enjoyment of all!

    You are to much fun! Thank you!!

  10. Kristi says:

    Ah, I’m so far behind reading your blog! It seems the feed isn’t working… the last entry I got was when the left hand column was updated on the 18th! Yikes!

    Your contest is neat, but alas I haven’t knit socks so I won’t be playing, but look forward to watching for the winner!

  11. Donna says:

    Hmmm, even though I’m only just completing my first pair of socks, I think I could hum a few bars of this ;)

  12. Tracey says:

    Hmmm, do they have hooked on phonics for something like this? Wow, huh, well, I am stumped so I am just going to sit on my duff and wait until Monday.

  13. Jane Pollard says:

    Hi, I just finished your sitcom chic from Knitty. I made it from some beautiful Crystal Palace Caprice from my stash. I LOVE THIS SWEATER! Thank you for writing so many great patterns. All of the knitters that I knit with are rushing to make one of their own. Jane Pollard

  14. Gloria says:

    This is driving me nutz! I’ve got most of it but there is one thing I haven’t figured out yet…okay, maybe two because I can’t read one of the little figures or letters. Arrrrrrg! I knit socks all the time.

  15. Ann says:

    It’s driving me nuts. I’ve got everything except the toe decreases. And I’m going batty.
