2 Socks at one time on the Magic Loop

 
Well today I learned how to knit 2 socks ~at the same time~ on one needle. The technique is called the Magic Loop. Prevents SSS ( Second Sock Syndrome). If you've ever knitted socks, you know that once you have the first sock done, it's hard to get the second one started, much less finished. This way they are both finished at the same time. A scok group that I'm on "For the love of Socks" try to get you to learn new techniques. This is what they are doing. I tried and tried the night B4 last and finally pulled them all out. Not to mention a few of the hairs on my hear!! LOL>>>>> I had mentioned the name of our Loyal Yarn Shop on another sock group I'm on " Townsend Sock Group" and a lady on there, emailed me to say is that the one in ???" Come to find out she worked about 5 min. from my house. So yesterday I went by her work and introduced myself. It's nice to put a face to someone you know on the groups. I've only done this with one other lady!!! Too fun!! I had mentioned I was trying to learn this tech., when what do you think she pulled out of her knitting bag???? You got it!!!! Socks ~ two socks on the magic loop!!!! When she found out that I was having trouble, she told me she would meet me at the LYS and teach me how. How sweet is that???? She was off on Thurs. So this morning, we met and she taught me how. And that's not all. She also taught the new owner of the shop!!! She was interested in learning as well. Anything that she can help her customers with, she's interested in learning. That's the kind of shop this is. I love all the ladies that work there and the owner. Neat ~ sweet and fun people. Anyway, THANK YOU KAREN!!!!! I had to come home and do some computer work, check my emails and then cook supper. But I'm off to magic loop baby!!!!!!!!!!!! Posted by Picasa

I haven't tried this method yet...I'd like to learn to do two socks at once on two needles and/or this method, but haven't gotten around to it yet. I'd like to learn new techniques this year, so maybe this will be one of them!
