Look What Came in the Mail Today!
I'm so excited! With the end of school fast approaching, I'm getting ready to start knitting in earnest again. So, to ensure that I'm all set, I placed an order...






But when I received the books, I realized that I did not have the right needles, so I had to place another order...



Can you tell I'm on a mission to learn new ways to knit socks? I've got the dpn thing down, but I want to try to minimize ladders, and the idea of completing two at a time intrigues and excites me.

I didn't buy sock yarn because I have a skein or two that I want to use first.

I have exams this week, but you better believe that one of these books, and a set of needles will be in my bag, in the car, for the rest of my afternoon (i.e. car loop at school).

I have both those books. I haven't been able to use the 2 at a time one yet 'cause I haven't gotten the right needle size yet...darn being a budget!
Good luck on exams and happy knitting!

Yeah...I'm on a budget too. I should have waited to get the needles, but I know that KP orders take a while to get here, so I wanted to have them ready. My bank account was a bit angry with me...oh well...

The 2 at a time socks looks interesting. I just found a book at the library called Knitting Vintage Socks, New Twists on Classic Patterns. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet.
