I once firmly believed that life was too short to knit socks. This belief was based on having to use dpns and I was certain that I would never ever voluntarily knit with the damn things.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
My friend Katie taught me magic loop and suddenly socks seem a much less annoying proposition. Suddenly I don’t feel like muttering, ‘why knit them when you can buy a pair for a few pounds?’ when someone waxes lyrical about the fabulous sock yarn they have bought.
So I am now on my second pair of socks. The first were given to Deborah as I knitted them too small for me, but this pair should fit me fine.
I am using the universal toe-up sock formula and so far so good. I am even feeling rather proud of my short-row toes!
