That is some magical sock yarn. I think after I've watched you blog a few more pairs of socks with the magic loop I'll be inclined to try it. I'll have to wait until the end of the school year and I have some brain space to work it out. I've never even tried one sock on circulars.


Becky: I LOOOOVE that yarn. I just love it. Of course the photos don't quite do it justice - there is a cool pearly sheen to it. It just makes me so happy to knit. I would buy more of this yarn in a heart beat. Regarding magic loop: Knittinghelp.com has a video that shows you how to move the knitting on and off the needles, so you can see the mechanics of it. Don't wait for me to give it a try.


Beautiful, beautiful...I am taking a toe-up class next week and I am very excited about it. Some how I imagine it opening up all sorts of doors for me!


They look great! Upside down, right side up - it's all good! Thanks for your comment today.


Heather: Make sure they teach you the magic 8 cast on. It's so great. None of that fussing around with waste yarn nonsense.

Cara: Thanks! It's a great pattern and I love how it kinda-sorta looks like cables, only not. Not sure I have it in me to knit 12 pairs, but I think I have a few of these monkeys in me. Ariba!

I love that color sock yarn and your mods. Your socks are going to rock!
