I had a good bit of time-like 4 hours-to work on my to go sock (12 in 2012 socks for June) while on the way to and from Sisters, OR on Saturday. Another road trip this month and maybe this sock will be finished. I think it's time to learn to do the magic loop. I don't know how many times I dropped a needle and had to unbuckle to pick it up. And that always makes me nervous! I love buying new knitting needles.
It's time to start the Toe -Up socks (July's 12 in 2012). I found a nice simple pattern in this book that calls for size 5 needles. I know using the bigger needles and 48 stitches per round will make this pair go super fast. The yarn is what is left over from making Ernie's socks. The socks that he doesn't wear except for when he is sitting in his recliner with super cold feet. He doesn't want to ruin them! I'm going to wear mine!! (And thanks to the tip from Paula, the Quilter, those socks fit perfectly.)
*** 10:00 am Happy to say I have learned the magic cast on and I have 2 socks with toes. Now I must do some housework instead of holding down the recliner.
I laughed when I read Judy L's post this morning because I plan to use this video on You Tube to learn the cast on. I tried last night to learn from the book but turning pages and reading confused me!!! I love that you can look up almost anything on You Tube and there will be a video for it. Thank you video makers!
