Cunningham Ankle Socks
by Vicki Peterson ~ http://purpleisafruit.blogspot.com/
2.75mm 40" circ
These socks were made with the magic loop method.
I knit a littler tighter than others, you might have to do down a 1/2 size.
Cast on 64 sts
K1 tbl, P1 around for 5 rows, if you'd like your sock a bit taller ( to cover your ankle knit for 20 - 25 rows)
on the same needle that you just finished knitting on slip 1, purl across and slip the last st
row 1 - p1, *k1, sl1* across to last st, purl last st
row 2 - sl1, purl across to last st, sl1
repeat 17 times or for 2.5 inches.
1 - WS - sl1, p20, p2tog, turn
2 - RS - sl1, k10, sl1, k1, psso, turn
3 - WS, sl1, p10, p2tog, turn
repeat rows 2 and 3 until you have 12 sts remaining.
pick up and knit 18 sts (slipped sts plus one extra) I pick up one extra st up by the ribbing to prevent a hole.
knit across the ribbing sts, then pick up another 18 sts, knit 6 sts from heel turn onto the other needle.
This will even out all your sts and give you a loop'd'loop'd'loop, you should have 24 sts, 32 sts and another 24 sts on the circ.
knit to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1, knit across ( where your ribbing is), k1, ssk, k to end
knit next round even
repeat these 2 rounds until you have 16 sts on each gusset side
knit the first 16 sts onto the same needle ( you will now continue with the regular magic loop, 2 loops instead of 3)
k1 tbl, p1 around for 2 inches
knit plain until the foot measures 2 inches shorter than the total foot length. Measure this from the picked up sts of the heel flap.
k1, ssk, k to last 3 sts, k2tog, k1 ( repeat on other needle)
knit next row even.
Repeat until you have 10 sts on each needle.
Kitchener sts together.
Avoid the second sock syndrome by casting on for sock 2 right now!!

Handspun Wrist Wallet
this is a super quick project to knit and good for teaching beginners some knitting techniques.
adding the zipper might take you the longest out of the whole project!!
worsted weight yarn handspun/dyed looks best but you can use store bought too
and a 4.00mm 32"circ and the same size dpn's
I used a old zipper from some jeans
needle and thread
ok lets start:
cast on 5 sts
knit each row for 8 inches....if you want your wallet just a tad bigger go for 9 inches
join and knit both ends tog to make a tube casting off as you go, so you will have 1 st left
this is where the circ comes in for the magic loop
on the same side as your last st, pick up and knit one st at each garter st bump.
the number of sts arn't critical after all it's just a wallet
*knit 2 sts, knit in the front and back of next st* around
you might not have enough sts to knit this evenly around the wallet... thats ok, just go with it!
then knit even for 1 inch, for me that was 6 rows
purl 1 row
knit 3 rows
purl 1 row
knit 1 row
*knit 2 sts, knit2tog* around (fudge it if you have to) ;)
*knit 1 st, knit2tog* around
you should have 6, 7, 8?? sts left on each needle
kitchener these tog.
tuck in ends
with the dpns cast on 3 sts and make a I-cord.
make this long enough that when the ends are together you can put your hand through the loop.
sew this onto the end of the wallet where you cast off.
now sew your zipper , you might have to cut the zipper a bit shorter, I made the opening about 4.5 inches.
I can fit my credit cards, change, cell phone and my van keys inside....
(yep in that little thing!!)
I use mine all the time and it's so great when you don't want to carry a purse around!!
