Experienced sock knitters.. help please?
Would anyone volunteer to proof read my new sock knitting tutorial? The first draft is ready and I need an unbiased eye to read through and make sure it all makes sense and that I didn't forget anything important. My mind can easily turn to mush when I'm editing photos and writing the HTML page all while trying to write the tutorial, you know?

I'd like a few different people to read it, but you need to be experienced enough to be able to see if I've missed something important. This is my two toe-up socks on a magic loop tutorial.

Hopefully I can get it online this week sometime, and your help would be SOOOOO appreciated!

I wouldn't call myself exceptionally experienced, but I am almost done with my third pair of socks.

I would love to read through the instructions, follow along, since I just bought long cables JUST for this reason, and provide feedback.

PM me if you want.

Thanks!

I've only made a 3 pairs of socks, but i'm a pretty darn good proofreader. I'd be more than happy to help.

Silver,

I've never done any Magic Loop, but I've done 3 or 4 pair of toe up socks.
If I can be of any help I'll be glad to proofread.

PM me if I can help!

Hey Silver! Toe up is my preferred method and I've done several. Let me know if you still need a proof reader

Yay! I just started some with this techique, but decided to wait until the tutorial's ready before I do the heels. Can't wait to see it when it's done!
