Well I finally did it. :woot: :woohoo: :cheering: :happydance: After many months of thinking about it, I cast on my 1st pair of socks. I am using magic loop to knit the “Man Socks” for the book [U]Closely Knit[/U]. I choose this pattern, cause A) I have the book, B) it used worsted weight yarn, C) it is a simple ribbed sock & D) I want to make men’s socks for the men in my family for Christmas.
I tried to use the 2 socks on 2 circs method, but it seemed a bit tricky for me to CO for both. I will try that method after I get this pair of socks under my belt, cause I enjoy using 2 circs to knit in the round. I have a book for this, but I only get confused by written directions. I prefer video.
So far so good, although I’m only 3" into the top of sock #1. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
