Milwaukee Sockers Update

Left to right: Shannon's glossy new pre-Florida pedicure, self-striping gray beauties by Shannon (her 1st socks) and completed Earth Girl's by Anne.

Can anyone out there clear up our group's confusion about the "Kitchener" stitch? I learned it as a seaming method. It's Judy's name for grafting, such as sock toes. Kris read about a kitchener stitch used as a cast-on method.

The Milwaukee Sockers just have to know, which is it?

Oh my goodness. Love the black & grey patterned socks. What kind of yarn was used?

Lynne: Here's the skinny on the yarn from Kris in Milwaukee: "It’s Moda Dea “Sassy Stripes” yarn by Coats in color 6930 (color number, not dyelot)
It’s 100% acrylic, machine wash cold, lay flat to dry.
164 yd/50g skein.
I used just under a skein for each sock."

Casting on Kitchener is for socks, heats and other items with elastic rib.
