Who woulda thunk it. Really, over 3 years ago when I came across sock knitting, I was all "why would you do that, stupid DPN’s, itty bitty yarn". I wish I’d kept the chinese bound foot sock I made in my first sock knitting class. Guaranteed to have you pissing yourself.
Current day – I’m all about the socks. Extreme sock knitting, bring it! I’ve gone from attempting dpn’s to 2 circular’s one at a time, to 2 circular’s two at a time and now 1 needle magic loop two at a time with a bit of lace for good luck.
Pictured here are the beginning’s of Anna’s Elfine, using my own handpaint. The lace is just starting to emerge. I haven’t got lace brain yet so I’m having to think a lot and look down at the pattern, but hopefully it’ll get quicker. I’m sure Kate thought I was nutty last night sitting next to her on the sofa muttering under my breath as I dropped stitches or misread the pattern.
Thank you to Joelene for her excellent turkish cast on magic loop tutorial.
I participated in a compound word picture project. Check it out this week as the diptychs roll out.
