KAL Open and Accepting Members

This knitalong is designed to bring together knitters from across the globe who want to share their photos of finished socks or works-in-progress, ideas for variations, or suggestions for different yarns for the patterns in the new book, Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave. Many of these patterns were originally printed in Interweave Knits magazine but have become unavailable as original issues went out of print. Others are from Interweave Knits' sister publications, Spin-Off and PieceWork, plus there are six brand-new patterns. Everyone is invited to participate--even if you don't have the book and want to pull out your back issues (scroll down to see the issues in which the patterns first appeared)!

Perhaps you have already knitted one (or two) of these socks? Post your photos! Do you have a funny story about your experiences with one of these patterns? Share it! We're looking forward to starting this new community of sock knitters to see where you will take us with this KAL.

I have indeed knit some of the patterns from the Favorite Socks books. 2 of them are favorites that have been knit more than once. I am also ready to cast on for Waving Lace Socks. How do I start a thread for a specific sock? Right now all I can do is comment.
