Silver's Learn 2 KNit Sock KAL 4 BOTH tutorials begins 3/18
Calling all those that wish to learn to knit socks for the first time or knitters who know how to knit socks but wish to learn toe up on ML--do you want to have a sock KAL once Silver finishes her toe up ML tutorial?

This gives us time to put finishing touches on current projects--or new ones, and shop for yarn and needles.

We would love veteran sock knitters to join us, too, especially when we need a little or a lot of hand holding.

Whatcha think--yay or nay?

Well, I have just finished 2 pairs of socks for the sock swap (my first ones ever, toe up on magic loop), so I might not join in, but will definately pop my head in to see how you guys are fairing from time to time.

Ooh I might as I'm supposed to be getting my Denise's soon in the post and my grandma's ordered some socks for her and grandpa! So it would be a nice way to try out the new needles and try doing toe up socks!
Just got to find some nice warm yarn... :thinking:
So maybe, depending on when I can get the things.

I've really wanted to try the ML method, but had no idea Silver was working on a tutorial. Since it was from her first tutorial that I learned traditional sock knitting, I am really pumped to hear she's doing a ML one.

At that point, I'd love to join in. I even have my long Addis Turbos and yarn, I just need to learn the method.

This sounds like fun. It will be my first project since finding this site. I've been lurking for a week or two. I've made one pair of socks (for around the house), one single sock (just to try something different!) and am now working on some simple christmas stockings from a free pattern from patons.

Count me in. I'm currently working on my third pair of socks on DPNs, but I just ordered some longer cables for the sole purpose of learning to make socks on ML.

YEAH! This will be my first KAL, and socks are my favorite!

Me Too!
Count me in on the KAL. I've made a few pairs of socks on dpns (thank you Silver!) and I love 'em but also want to learn ML. I've tried but really struggle with the long cord PLUS I keep getting ladders, which I've never had with dpns. I just know Silver will be able to get the concept thru this thick head!
I can't wait!

The Two Toe Up Socks using ML tutorial is UP!!!

Silver recommends the following supplies:

Worsted weight yarn: approximately 225-350 yds, depending on length
A Size 5 or 6 circular needle, at least 40 inches long
one split ring stitch marker, saftey pin or scrap of yarn
a tapestry or yarn needle
a ruler or measuring tape
and lots and lots of PATIENCE

For those with yarn & supplies, let's party, and for those who don't, hurry and join us as soon as you can!
