I agree with the ribbed socks. I've heard they stay on better, esp. with a little elastic knittd into the ribbing.

For cotton yarns, I'm in love with Plymouuth's Fantasy Naturelle, King Tut and On Line's Clip. Cascade also does a great yarn, Sierra, which is 80/20 cotton/wool. It knits like a dream and doesn't sag for big projects. Good luck!


Ok. I got a new computer and I still haven't updated all of my feeds and what? You're pregnant? Holy moly! That is so cool. So many great things happening for you!



i've used mission falls cotton twice, and i find it to be really tough on my hands. i'm also not a huge fan of the bumpy texture. the only cottons that haven't given me strain to date are rowan handknit dk cotton and phildar aviso (but that's a bit splitty). i've heard good things about rowan calmer, cotton-ease, and knitpicks shine, though.


I've heard that the Stay-on Baby Booties from Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristen Nicholas do stay on. They have ties at the ankles that help with that :) I've knit some based upon the recommendation of a mama-friend who told me that they were the only booties that stayed on her son's foot.


I'm not crazy about that yarn. I used it once.

I'd make ribbed tube socks. Those would stay on.

Get my message the other day?
