Knitting toe-up socks two at once
Got up crazy early last Saturday to take a class at KnitNation. It was with Chrissy Gardiner and it was my last go at learning to knit socks; if this didn’t get me on the road, nothing would!
Fortunately Chrissy is a great teacher – and gets extra points for being a great teacher, even whilst being jet-lagged – and so we learnt Judy’s Magic Cast On, how to knit two socks at once on a single cable needle, to do a short row heel and a super stretchy cast off.
I was all inspired about knitting again and saw in the latest issue of Twist Collective this fabulous – free! – pattern by Pam Allen, Tern. It looks great, is interesting enough to keep your attention, but not too complex that you end up with a scrunched up face trying to concentrate – all win.
