Pomatomus


I have joined the Pomatomus knit along hosted by Twisted Thistle. No button yet because I am eternally confused by this HTML thing and have to have my husband's help. Pomatomus is a sock pattern from Knitty, an online knitting "magazine". I've decided to use Stahl Sche Wolle Socka Cotton Color (I don't even know what part of that is brand name and what part is identifying the yarn) from my stash that is blue/turquoise/green variegated; I like the colors a lot and since it's half cotton I think they'll be comfortable for the summer.

I do have some slight concern regarding the size; I am not an experienced sock knitter (almost done with my third pair) so I'd love some advice. I have huge feet. 10" long, 9" circumference. Are these stretchy enough to fit me? I know I can adjust the length but I'm concerned about the circumference because the pattern says they're 7" unstretched.

I think the colour of your yarn is going to be great for the Pomatomus socks.
I have finished my Pomatomus socks and I don't think you need to worry about the size. I have large feet too, and they fit perfectly. The fabric is very stretchy so I think they will fit almost every foot.

That color will look great as Pomatomi. Good luck!

My Pomatomus are almost done and they do seem to be really stretchy. I know what you mean about the html, I can put the botton on my blog but can't figure out how to make it a link and put it in my side bar!

Thanks, Sigma! I am much less worried about the sizing now. I do tend to knit loosely (very, very loosely) so my gauge may be a bit off which will help with the size as well.

Can you buy that exact brand online?

I'm not sure if it can be purchased online, I did a quick search and couldn't find it. However, I ended up ripping the Pomatomus sock so I still have it; would you be interested in a trade? E-mail me at MitoRocks at juno dot com and let me know.

Thank You, but I was looking for a specific color. Long story short: I started a pair of socks & lost the last bit to finish them. Any chance you have this: Stahl Sche Wolle Socka Color #9106 Lot #32735?? A Greenish color. I've done some extensive Internet browsing as well & NO luck :( When I saw the picture in this blog I got excited!
