Okay, I have posted a few socks that I have made here, each one so far done with dpn, which I do like......However, I just decided to teach myself how to do socks with Magic Loop! Oh WoW!!! I can't believe how much faster it goes.
Now mind you, I only did one at a time......but after I do this a couple times, I think I will try to teach myself two at a time.
I really want to teach myself toe up first. Its the cast on I seem to have trouble with, but the internet is so helpful for this!! All you need to do is google something and You Tube probably has it. Some are better teachers than others, but if you watch a couple different ones, you pick up different things, or the camera angle was closer, etc. Here is a picture of my first sock, the second one is just started on the needles. I pretty much did this one over the holiday weekend, but I didn't sit and knit constantly. Would never have gotten the dpn done this fast. I am just amazed. Maybe someday I can keep up with friends, like Leah from the knitting giraffe. She does amazing socks, and has them done so quickly!! :) I got so excited, that my LYS was having their sidewalk days....still are come to think about it.......hmmm....that I went and bought two more skeins,
at half price to do some more socks. Do I have sock yarn in my stash you ask? Why yes,
but doesn't a knitter always need to get more.........me thinks so!!! :)I hope you all had a relaxing 4th....we had a wonderful time at my SIL house. Nice and relaxing. Please continue to pray for Alex...he will be coming home soon, but as the time draws near, he is almost more homesick........it was hard for him to have us all together and him not be there over the 4th. I know many of you are praying, and I sincerely know that that is what will get him through this, and from a mothers heart, I thank you most sincerely!!
