So I started this on 10-27, late at night. I can't seem to put it down. It's my first (knitted) socks, and I have tried several techniques and patterns before settling on this one. I don't like dpns or two circs for sure... too "fiddly" to deal with. Magic loop rocks! I have frogged my work at least 15 times now, finally got the hang of the cast on and increases, gonna keep going... further bulletins as events warrant! Pics to come.
