I am definitely going to use this method for my next pair of socks, actually my next two pair since it occured to me that while I'm getting familiar with the technique, it might be a good idea to use two different color yarns!
Then I can make a second set that matches the first set and have two pair and some practice on how to do this!
A - I can always use an extra pair of socks and
B - This way I won't be bald-headed from pulling my hair out!
Just thought I'd throw this into the mix!
