Yesterday, I went to my favorite yarn store. I told the store owner, Jane, that I planned on trying socks on two circs. Then, she showed me her sock on magic loop….

I always thought Magic Loop would be harder than that. (If magic is in the name, it has to be hard and mystical.) So, I promptly came home and tried my hand at magic loop. I am using the Simple Sock pattern from Socks Soar on Two Needles so I don’t have to try and manipulate a DPN pattern on my first try…..

First Magic Loop Attempt

I also wound up some yarn this morning. Some Malabrigo Worsted for Foliage from Knitty, Fall 2007, and some Louet Gems Fingering for Endpaper Mitts, by Eunny Jang.

I am also happy to report that I cast on for my second Tangled Yoke sleeve!! I decided it would be my TV knitting since it’s simple, and then it would get done!

Thanks for all the nice comments on my Pomatomus socks.  I was really happy with them, and wore them yesterday!
