for circs, i love my knitpicks classic circs in size 0 or 1.
Silver most definitely has a ML toe up 2 at a time sock tutorial
. It's on her site. I started learning how to make socks on dpns and hated the ankle down method. Then I learned toe up socks on dpns and liked that better, enough to make a pair or two of honest to goodness socks. Next, I tried Silver's tutorial and that IMO, rocks!
I wanted to jump in and say ML's the way to go to learn how to make socks but I wonder if there's a benefit to slogging through the more traditonal sock making techniques so you can learn different construction methods and how socks go together. Then again, you might just want to jump into Silver's method just for the fun and ease of making a pair of socks all at once and missing out on SSS (second sock syndrome!) then explore other methods once you have your confidence up.
Anyway, I love ML and probably won't turn back from here.
