Oh!That 4AAT project was from a couple of years ago. I posted that pic just to show how I kept the yarn from getting tangled. Here's how the socks came out. Glad you like the yarn; I dyed it.

I've finished the reinforced toes, and I'm working my way up to the instep.

I never really got magic loop until I watched a couple of videos on YouTube. Sometimes books work best for me, sometimes videos. I highly recommend magic loop, so don't give up.

As for learning to do magic loop, I finally just grabbed a long circ and some yarn and watched a video and tried it. It worked. I couldn't understand it until I saw it taking place on the needles. Two at a time was the same way, but once I did it, it was clear why it works. I wouldn't try to explain it to anyone, I'd have to say that once you've done it you should get it.

Glad I could help! I'm working on the heels now. Once I get them done, I'll post another pic. Then I'll be doing the argyle, which is new territory for me.

Lest y'all think I'm some kind of sock-knitting guru, I had just about finished the heels, realized they weren't fitting right, and discovered I'd neglected to rearrange the stitches. So I was using half the stitches instead of 60% or so. Rip, rip, rip. This was the first time I've ripped back socks the "thrilling" way: pulling the needles out! But the wool was nice and grabby, so the tiny loops just sat there for me to pick up. Here's where I'm at:
