On the Needles – May 15, 2015

First pair of socks 051515Ok, so I haven’t finished the blanket for my sister yet, but who says you can only have 1 knitting project? 🙂 I’ve always wanted to learn to knit socks and since hubby and the kids got me an Amazon gift card for Mother’s Day I decided to buy the circular needle I needed to learn to do magic loop from the toe up. I did the cast on today and now I need to watch the YouTube video again to learn how to start working it, this might be a good project to take camping!

Linking up to Patchwork Times.

  1. Good luck with your new venture in using circular needles toe up sock making. Be sure to let me know how it goes. I haven’t tried it yet, but I do love making top down on 5 dpns. That is how I was shown when I was first learning and now that I know it pretty well, it’s hard to start all over, but I am going to try it your way.

  2. I love knitting toe up, two at a time, magic loop. The LYS owner, who has now closed her shop, would only teach DPN sock knitting but since I wanted to do two at a time I turned to the internet. I found VeryPinkKnit and KnitFreedom and learned with ease. I usualy do Judy’s Magic Cat on and just learned the Fish Lips Kiss heel, all from videos online. Have fun.
