I forgot to say that the book also has instructions for doing two socks at a time for both cuff to toe and toe-ups. Please forgive me this may be a long post.

Dotmom61, kitchener stitch is really easy once you get the pattern down. I wasn't hesitant about about dpns. They don't look hard to use to me. I just know I wouldn't like them. For one thing it makes no sense to me knitting with five ndls when I can do the same thing with one. Also I have a disability and if I drop a ndl there might not be someone with me to pick it up. ML seems to be more portable to me. I can easily fit the ndl and the sock into my yarntainer. I don't think the sock and 3-4 ndls would fit as well.

Norman, the heel is only knitted on one needle, 30 of the 60 sts. So you treat it like straight knitting and knit one row then purl the other. Once your done with the heel you go back to knitting in the round with both ndls. The beauty of this book is the heel/toe are interchangeable. I can put the heel/toe into any sock pattern. I like it because there isn't a heel turn and I don't have to pick up sts. But if your doing a pattern written for dpns there are materials that will teach you how to convert the pattern to ML. It's really easy. If your really interested in this you should join the the MagicLoop Yahoo! Group. They have all kinds of tips and tricks and other helpful resources.

Jan in CA, the booklet is fabulous. Very well written. I had no problems at all. I thought I might since I've only been knitting for 6 months.

KellyK, I'm sorry I'm putting so much pressure on you. :D Just think about Xmas is only 36 days away then you can knit all the sock you want.

To everyone, thank you for all of your praise. It is really appreciated. I L♥VE KH!!! You guys are so great!

It was my fault, Ingrid. I should have known Kelly couldn't take post about socks. Here I am posting pics of my sock and I didn't think about how this would effect Kelly. You know my mom used to warn all of the other kid's parents about me being a bad influence. I guess she was right. :rofling: :rofling: :rofling:
