First toe-ups on a magic loop

September 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

It makes sense to knit socks from the toe-up. You can try them on along as you go, and you can knit until you run out of yarn. Doing them on a magic loop will eliminate the ladders/loose stitches you get from dpn’s and you won’t have a hard time doing number two. I wanted to try all of that :)

I grabbed a ball of Crazy Zuberball from my Stash and went along. In order to control the selfstriping colors I decided to mix it with some brown Arwetta. 4 skeins of yarn was too much for my magic loop – they got really tangled very quickly! so I made one at a time, saving the 2-at-the-same-time practise for later.

From now on I will prefer to knit socks this way. Way easier :)
