Has anyone made the Eternity Socks with Spirals by Gabriele Boldt (paid pattern)? I'm not able to follow the pattern. My major problem is that it is written for double points which I have never used. If anyone has made these socks with two circs or one long needle, I'd like to hear any tips/help you can provide. I rarely pay for patterns since there are so many free ones out there and because I cant see the details. If I'd been able to read it over, I never would have purchased it. Wouldn't you know it's one of my husband's favorite patterns :|

If you are using 2 circulars, put stitches from needles 1+2 on the first one with a stitch market between. Put needle 3 stitches on the second circular.

This worked for me.

It works the same no matter what needles(s) you use. It's knit 3, purl 3 until you are finished. What makes the spiral is that you have a multiple of 6 sts, plus 1. So if you have 37 sts it's made up of 36 sts is multiple of 6 sts x 6 = 36 + 1 = 37. 6 x 7 = 42 + 1 = 43. So cast on will be 37 or 43.

I haven't made them, and I probably won't, but they are tempting: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/eternity-socks-with-spirals

Put markers where the beginning/end of each needle would be if using double points. Mark the first marker different than the rest so you know the beginning of the round.

Thank you all for your help. I appreciate your time.
J-J. If I have provided the enticement for you to make a pair of socks, and you do so, I'd be thrilled. :-P :-P

While they are interesting, the black sock yarn I have is already mostly transformed from two balls into a Pimpelliese scarf. Besides which, I'm too cheap to buy a sock pattern, no matter how tantalizing. Too may WIPs, too little time. ;)

I hear you loud and clear....it's official, I'm now a "true" knitter. Just yesterday I started filling a new tote with WIP/UFO--a first for me. Don't do black, am looking at bright yellow and midnight blue (I feel I must give the socks a try since I bought the pattern) Pimpelliese scarf looks interesting.

It's easy and can be boring after a while. That's why they take me so long to finish. But they're a good way to use up a few balls of a yarn that aren't really enough to do much else with.

It does not take multiple projects to be classed as a 'true knitter'. There are actually knitters who plan ahead (always a failing of mine) and never have more than a single project going at one time. I bow to their control/focus. I've too many to count, but some do get finished ... eventually. ;)

Jessica-Jean. Thank you for always supplying the URL when someone asks a question about a pattern. It's so helpful. If you didn't do it, I would never look the pattern up.

I'm no help, because I knit socks exclusively with dpns. But thanks for mentioning these, I saved the link, these are intriguing enough to put in my " make someday" file.

Glad you like them. If you decide to make them, please post a photo.

You don't need to know the beg. of the row. The beginning is the moved over by one st. Every row.
