How's everybody doing. I'm a manic sock knitter, and have recently, after having knitted about 80 pairs of socks on 4 DPNS have discovered the "Majick Loop" method using a 100cm long 2.5mm circular needle.
After I'd knitted a couple of pairs on this loop I thought why not knit them both at the same time, just like sleeves, they'll be the same length, without having to bother to count. At the end of the process I'll have a pair of socks rather than being half way through the task. It's just brilliant, firstly Addi Turbo needles are indeed fast to knit on, plus sts. don't come off the needles in my bag.
The second sock has to be cast on DPNS THEN TRANSFERRED TO CIRC NEEDLE at the middle of the 1st round.
In this picture of cabled, re-inforced heel & toe socks, a pattern I'm designing for sale at the shop Loop, where I work in London, I used Colinette, Superwash Merino, 4 ply sock yarn, Colours Lapiz & Lagoon.
Happy knitting Men
Here, is a scarf I knitted on 12mm neddles 1 row Colinette.5 and 3 rows Rowan kid silk haze mohair. I threaded 400+ beads, but the red ones don't really read!
