Hi there! I'm in a swap on ravelry and my partner wants to try magic loop for toe up socks. I don't magic loop myself, lol-prefer dpns. So my question is, what size addi's do I purchase and can anyone recommend a book?TIA!
I am about to try magic loop for the first time and have been told to use a circular needle with a long flexible cable. I have heard that a 32" cable is good as it gives pleanty of manouverability. Obviously the sizze of the needle tip will deend on the sock yarn guage requirements.I am going to be using an online pattern and will probably be doing top-down so i'm afraid i can't help with a book.
Tarrentella Starting June 24th there is an online socks knitting class that is being done using skype here is the link to the thread her on knitting help http://knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=80586
here is a video for learning ML ( its right here on KH) and how I learned to ML knit. Scroll down to ML.
Then to do my first sock Katknit ( a member here) gave me the link to her sock recipe for ML here:
Here's how I learned - it's a great little booklet:
32 inch circulars are good to use - you want a lot of cable with ML. It's a great technique!
Thank you all for your help!
