Knit Picks Two At Once, Toe up, Magic Loop socks.

imageI attempted to knit two at a time socks on pair #2 of 2016. I had previously knit a skirt two at a time, and thought I could do this again, Well, the skirt was just two rectangles, it was knit flat and I had an instructor and experienced knitters on hand to help. The socks were a different story.

The toes started out fine. The increases presented no problems whatever. Once I got to the foot, as all sock knitters know, I was on easy street.

The heel is where I ran into trouble. I just could not get it to work. I wound up connecting the socks. I did not realize I needed to work one heel at a time. So, I transferred one sock to another set of circulars and finished them up one at a time. I was determined to try again. I found this pattern on the Knit Picks website.

 

I am giving it a go. I plan to use their Capretta yarn. It is a merino/cashmere/nylon blend.The Bittersweet yarn on my Pair #3 post is the same blend and I absolutely loved knitting with it. The socks feel wonderful. Soft and squishy. Just like I like them.

ETA: It is a cold, snowy, wet Sunday in New York. A perfect pajama and knit day.
