Do you believe in Magic?

The Magic Loop, that is? I first learned how to knit socks a little over a year ago on DPNs (double point needles). It was very cool seeing the sock form, etc, but I just didn't like using the DPNs, so I decided that I really wasn't a sock knitter. It's a love/hate relationship when knitting socks. You either become addicting and can't stop buying sock yarn, or you just don't do it at all.

Then a couple of weeks ago, I decided that I was going to try it again, this time using a different method with one long circular needle instead of the dreaded DPNs. This technique was aptly named "The Magic Loop". I watched you tube videos and bought a little book about it and now I think I've got it! I LOVE the Magic Loop method! I actually can't stop knitting my socks! I'm almost done with the first one and will then start on it's matching 2nd. I can now see why people get "hooked" on knitting socks. I have finally seen the light.

I have two other projects I'm working on, but they have been put on the back-burner until I finish my sacred socks. :)


  1. Very nice! You are becoming quite the expert. :)

  2. Beautiful ... what attention to detail ... I'm not sure I can follow directions quite that well. Great job!!! -- Laura
