Hi, I'm one of the Sierra Fiber Trash Girls, and have a CSM... looks like yours has a 64 cylinder? I have an antique Legare 47, with 54 and 72 cylinders, and have been making a bunch of socks, three tubular scarves but haven't braved using the ribber yet. Do you think I could make the warm warmers on the 54, with slightly heavier yarn? They are cool.. thanks for sharing the patterns.

Absolutely! Try it with sport weight and adjust your tension accordingly. This would be a great way to play with that ribber! Although I'm guessing you have a 36 ribber dial? Try a folded down cuff and switch to 2x1 rib for the arm. I have antique machines too! 2 Legare 400s, a Verdun 47 and semi-automatic, an old English autoknitter (it has a plate with all three locations) and a old Gearhart. Watchout these babies multiply!

Hi there.

I love these socks, the style, colour, everything! I want to make my own and it will be my very first attempt at anything other than a tube done on waste yarn. Can I just ask, you mention 8.5 ladies fitting, can I assume that is a UK ladies size?
I only have an 84 size cylinder so I hope they come out ok!
Thanks for sharing your pattern :)

Finer yarn -- maybe Opal? or a heavy laceweight in superwash -- there are some available. Tighten your gauge accordingly and an 84 should work fine. I've heard of people using Zephyr wool/silk with a 96 cylinder.
