I have been working on socks. I took a class earlier this month on making socks – toe up, two at a time, on Magic Loop and completed the first pair. Not even close to perfect but I did learn a lot. As soon as I finished the class, I cast on two more pair. For the class we used size 4 needles (I knit very loose so used size 3) and somewhat thicker yarn. I bought yarn to make two more pair of the same – just different colors.
At the same time, I had size 1 needles and regular sock yarn so I decided to cast on a pair. I am getting ready to turn the heel on this pair.
I am loving how they are turning out. Nice bright colors and similar looks but not the same. There are a lot more stitches on this pair than the first pair so the heels will take more time. I am using the Fish Lips Kiss Heel and it is really quite easy, once you have done it at least one time.
The other pair are only a couple of inches long at this point but go much faster with the larger needles and thicker yarn.
