Socks on Circs...

Yea... What a tangled fuckin' mess that was! In the time I spent casting on and trying to manipulate my way through the first round of the cuff.. I could have been done with the cuff of the first sock on DPNs... Thanks, but no thanks... All the power to those of you that have mastered this technique. I just couldn't manage the really long cable(a 40" Addi Turbo, US size 2) and two skeins of sock yarn(Patons Kroy Socks), it felt like I was trying to knit a bird's nest or something... I relaxed the cable in hot water so it I wasn't fighting and curls from the packaging. I used two balls of yarn so I wouldn't have to worry about unwinding, although one ball did "throw up" quite a bit when I pulled out the beginning end. I give... DPNs for me!

PS Here are a few pictures of what I've been craftin' for ya...

Were you trying to do 2 socks on 2 circs? Or Magic Loop?

I cannot manage the dpns - but love my circs to pieces. (I swore I'd never do socks 'cause of the dpns...but now on circs, I love 'em.)

If I ever dry out from the water gun squirts while I was in your alley, I might be able to teach you how! :P
