After finishing my shorties last week, I found myself with no socks on the needles and a date night planned with my hubby. I conned him into taking me to The Lost City with Sandra Bulluck and Channing Tatum. So I hurriedly grabbed the first sock yarn I found and got a sock toe cast on.
This is a skein of String Theory Inertia Self Striping in the Stark Effect colorway. Its very neon and very spring/easter-y. I LOVE IT. And this much sock is exactly one movie’s worth of stockinette in the round.
I think I will knit a sock tube and cuff and then add an all black heel as a contrast. This project is just making me so happy. I will be sad when this one is over and might have to order another skein of this colorway…..
Do you knit the toes with dpns or the Magic Loop method?
I use DPNs. Never got the hang of magic loop. And I switch to my nine inch circulars as soon as the toe increases are done.
I’ve knit 2-3 pairs of toe up socks so im not too adept at the beginning of the toe section. I get my dpns mixed up so I tried the Magic loop method using a too short circular but made it work for the first two rounds. I switched to dpns then nine inch circular.
