I love learning something new!
Today it was the Magic Loop. Now I know there are many many techniques out there to knit things in the round and I certainly have No Problems with Double Pointed but sometimes there's just things that seem to work out so much easier (and help the poor knitter) out a bit when you can use one large ass needle for multiple projects.
My wonderful shopowner and friend Patricia put me on to this technique. I was a skeptic at first but realize it's Just Like using two circulars - so if i liked that = this would be a piece of cake. and it is! Of course you must knit the way you feel most comfortable or what's the point! But for my 2 circ peeps out there, this isn't half bad and I whole heartly support you checking it out.
I'm working on a sample for her store. Of course it's the Jaywalker pattern in tekking xxl which is a fabulous sock yarn. It makes me think of the Sock Hop yarn that I see on the blogs where each ply is a different color but then the whole thing changes color.
Oh and lastly, this pattern is strong with the force and I may need to make one in time for the 31st.
