I'm all registered! Can't wait, as I really need a new pair of slippers, and these should do the trick. Looking forward to it. Is it okay to use two different colors of Manos, or do you want one color? Any specific color preferences? Enough questions?


Hi Julie,

I'd say that one-color is most useful to us, but as long as you use all-manos two colors is fine as well. Our colors for the samples are Blush, Coffee, and Wildflowers. Any greens, browns, and pinks are our book colors, as well as Ivory and Bronze.


Hi Larissa- A question to see if I am "allowed" to sign up...Can I use 2 circs instead of DPNs? Please advise.



Yes, KT, 2 circs are fine. The pattern lists out instructions for a set of dpns, but if you know how to knit socks on 2 circulars then I'm sure you can figure the conversion. The rest of all the numbers and instructions would work the same and get a good test from you. Thanks!


Hi Larissa!
I signed up, but i am a little stuck on cash this month. I didn't realize that Manos was going to be so expensive. ^^;;
I have about half a skein that i got from a friend, and i think i'll be able to make one sock in the smallest size.
If this doesn't work, please let me know, and go ahead and remove me from the knit along. I won't use the pattern, cross my heart.
so sorry for the inconvenience!


A sock knitted with my most favorite of all yarns? How could I not sign up? I am in.


I realize this is probably not the right place to be asking this question--I could not find an email address posted anywhere, so I ask your forgiveness in advance.

Being new to the world of knitting blogs, I have seen many many excellent meathead hats, and would like to participate in a knitalong, if one is still going on. I'd like to make one as a gift for a friend serving in the Peace Corps in Azerbaijan, where it snows for about 6 months out of the year.

Thanks for your consideration.

I just balled up some manos yesterday and I got a yarn store gift certificate. I've never knit socks before so this will be fun!

I've been dying to make some socks for myself. what a lovely excuse. now my twin goals: (a) to pick a color out of all the lovelys and (b) to find some spare cash ;)


I hope to join but word press still (24 hrs later) has not sent me my password. :-(

Woo Hoo! I joined up and got yarn and DPNs today. I'm almost finished with my first sock ever! I tell you, that instep seems to go on and on and on, but it's only a couple rows shy of starting the toe decreases. A picture of the work so far is on my blog. THis is fun! :)


Have finished my Manos socks 101...and I have posted them to the flickr group socks 101...but they are not showing within the socks 101 group photo stream...?????what to do?????


are you still looking for KAL knitters? I'd LOVE to join and have a skein of Manos that I have no idea what to do with. This would be perfect!


I take it the knitalong is long done. I was looking for socks 101 from royea.com, but that site is not available. Is your pattern available?
