Two words….MAGIC LOOP. Wow. I know, I’m late to the party, like, really really late. I am now firmly onboard and ready.
Last Thursday I went to my LYS’ sit and knit, something I try to do now and then, you know, when the planets align and I have time, money and gas all at the same time (a rare occurrence most weeks). One of the women was working on mittens for a gift and she was using magic loop. I was fascinated. After watching her for most of the session I finally asked her about it. Everyone at the table piped up, offering advice and making suggestions. I bought a set of size 1 40 inch needles and itches to get started.
I waited. Almost a week I waited. Finally, this evening I found a tutorial that made sense to me and went at it. I have to admit, I was a little confused, a bit flustered, but determined. I NEED to be able to make two socks at once!! I love knitting socks, and always have some on the needles, like these Bark socks, by kiwiyarns knits (awesome patterns, by the way).
Love me some socks, and I can’t wait to do two at once.
For my first magic loop project I decided to do some fingerless mitts for myself for work. I can’t find my mittens and my hands have been freezing. So far, so good, of I do say so myself!
