There was an entry somewhere here on MenWho about 2Socks/2Circs using Antje Gillingham's method. Can anybody tell me how to re-find that entry? I've lost it and can't get back to it. (Maybe the author blocked me.) I'm exploring 2S/2C and I'd like to hear some sock-makin' chatter.
I also found another 2S/2C method. It's by Sheron Goldin at http://www.socknitters.com/2circs/index.htm . The MWK author who used Gilliingham's method may have mentioned Goldion's method.
Her description is wordy along the lines of . . . Yea verily In the beginning, God created sheep, then man to shear the sheep . . . then trees for needles . . . and so forth. But it's full of good process pics. (I'm editing it -- w/o permisdsion -- down to do dis/do dat, but with flare.) Can anybody comment on the differences, if any, between Goldin's and Gillingham's 2S/2C methods?
Related topic: stretchy cast-ons. While looking through descriptions of Twisted German Cast-on for a write-up I could decipher, I came across a video for stretchy cast on using a knitting needle and a crochet needle -- pardon, crochet hook. It's simple and looks extremely stretchy, but on the lacey side maybe?. Has anybody used it? Is it too beneath the dignity of a knitter to pick up a crochet hook yada yada? Is it too frilly for Bear Clogs (if so, then . . . what? Cast on in black?) Looks great to me. If you want to see a good demo of this knitneedle/crotchhook CO method, it's at:
BTW, one of the Twisted German CO videos on uTube clarified that method for me. It's kinda slick!
