These are my second pair of socks ever, and I decided to go nuts and do them toe up (a first) and two at once (also a first!). It's fun, I love knitting them both at once even if it gets a little tangly.
Getting the Figure-8 cast-on was a bear so I abandoned it for Judy's Magic Cast On method
, which worked like a dream. This is today's progress.
The pattern is from knitty, widdershins
and I'm doing the cabled ones on two size 4 circular needles. Yarn is LionBrand Microspun--which feels nice and looks nice, but kinda loose and splitty to work with.
Below is today's progress. Unfortunately my camera is stinky and you really can't see the detail or the cables all that well. But I rather like how they're coming out! (my stitches are so even today)
I'll post another pic when they're done.
Without further ado:
