new skills

I’ve been trying to learn how to knit two socks at once on two circulars. Everyone else seems to be able to do it and there’s nothing like a little competitive nature to keep me motivated.

Somehow I kept finding it so difficult and messy until I found the magic cast on for toe up on Knitty by Judy Becker. Starting from that point made it all seem easy and possible. I even emailed Judy a question and she was so nice and helpful. So now I’m working on her Tangled up in Blue sock pattern.

Look at that cute little toe…

    Love the socks; I am just working my way through my first pair of 2×2 as well. The toe up on 2×2 does seem a little tough at first, unwieldy maybe – all that needle and the yarn; it is definitely better as the socks progress. The only thing I found is that I have been much slower to get them done – maybe because I don’t have to worry about remembering from one to the next. Congrats!

    I’m so jealous! Firstly because you can KNIT SOCKS (I despair of ever being able to KNIT SOCKS,much less being able to KNIT SOCKS in a fancy way that results in both socks being done at the same time,) and secondly because you have sweet little Baby Girl fingers to get in your pictures! My kids are so OLD, it wouldn’t be the same. Sometimes I do get a curious kitty-cat nose, though.
