sock swap 'vog ons complete

A delicious lacy confection in mouth-wateringly juicy shades of orange. I wish I didn't have to send these socks away. The yarn is the Koigu I bought during the fall TTC Knitalong, and though I wanted to keep it, no other sock plans worked out for this round of the 'palooza. Thus I gave in, grabbed the yummy orange and the trusty pattern (I hear the designer thinks just like me) and got to work. My housewarming party derailed my progress the week before the deadline, and so these socks are more than a week late going out. I hope the recipient thinks that they're worth it.

this is why I didn't take the pictures when I submitted the pattern.

x-posted from my blog, where there is a bonus picture of the sock on vacation!

"Vog On" Bluebird of Friendlliness

This is a wonderful pattern. Not too easy but you can still have a conversation or watch tv while knitting. I used a 100% mercerised Cotton. The pattern and especially the cast on row held up quite well.

Yarn: Jaeger - Aqua Cotton - Color 329 Salvia
Needle: 5 Size 2 Brittany dp's
Pattern: Vog On - Knitty Summer 2007

toe-up corrections and w&t

edited to reflect the actual published pattern, rather than the incorrect one i submitted

Hi everyone! There is a wee problems with the toe-up numbers. One tiny correction will be made to the Knitty pattern soon; in the meantime the correction is in bold. Hope nobody got too frustrated with the pattern! I'm sorry I didn't catch this sooner!

Tequila Phoenix (toe-up formula)
Eye of Partridge Heel Flap:
Repeat these 4 rows 8 times more; then Rows 1 & 2. Do not turn work at end of last row. You will be at end of Needle 4. 57 sts remain.

Here are some wrapping and turning instructions from the Lizard Ridge pattern:

Wrap & Turn [W&T]
To wrap and turn on a RS row, knit to point specified in pattern, bring yarn to front of work between needles, slip next stitch to right-hand needle, bring yarn around this stitch to back of work, slip stitch back to left-hand needle, turn work to begin purling back in the other direction.
To wrap and turn on a WS row, purl to point specified in pattern, bring yarn to back of work between needles, slip next stitch to right-hand needle, bring yarn around this stitch to front of work, slip stitch back to left-hand needle, turn work to begin knitting back in the other direction.

Hi, how is everyone doing on their 'Vog Ons? I have one down, one to go and I got sidetracked with the Mystery Stole 3, so now I'm on track again and going to cast on the 2nd sock.

Hogwarts Sock Swap Sock

I had been trying to find the perfect pattern for pal - something appropriate but not obvious but gave up, then I remembered the other names of the 'vog on socks. So I am knitting Tequila PHOENIX - how apt I thought (esp with the release of The Order of the Phoenix). I haven't done much yet but really enjoying the pattern. My swap pal is a Ravenclaw so I am using self-striping Ravenclaw sock yarn from RazzyTazzyKnits
