Late to the Party....
I have been extremely resistant to the Magic Loop method of knitting - particularly when it is applied to socks. I took a class years ago with Meghan and complained the whole way through - I hate this way, who would want to do this by choice, all those wrap and turns for short row heels and toes - puh-lease a complete waste of time. (Meghan says I'm a high maintenance student but I don't really get that, do you?)nSo when Saturday's Toe Up Socks Two At A Time on One Circular began I was really just thinking that it was a crazy class and really, what was wrong with socks on dpns, one at a time. HOWEVER, after a very stressful week with a serious health scare with my dad I thought - well, I just feel like knitting today so I will give this stupid method a try. The result......I love it....as you can see.............the varigated ones were my first and since I was ready for the heel class early I cast on a second pair. Who knew?
