Hi. I am not absolutely new to knitting but am fairly new. I have knit a few successful and pretty hats. I'd very much like to learn to knit socks now. I want to jump straight to learning how to knit two-at-a-time toe-up socks on one long circular needle, using the magic loop method. I don't see myself knitting socks any other way once I have mastered this one. However, I have read that I should first familiarize myself with other methods of knitting socks before I jump to this one.
Is this true? If yes, what other methods should I learn before I get to this method?
Any tips or advise would help me a lot! Thanks
