All Done, finally

Presenting my first pair of socks on Circulars. (applause inserted here).

Ok, I wanted to learn, I learned, I am really glad they are finished. I guess what made the experience less than great was I think a combination of the yarn catching on the bottom of the needles so I was having to always force those last few stitches onto the needles, and the other problem, I knit pretty tight. Next time I'll make some changes. But all in all, I like them, as you can see I have them on and they are comfortable. I'll wear them to the LYS to see if they have any size 2 Addi Circulars.

I knit terribly tight, too, but I found the Magic Loop much easier than the 2 circs, although it's the same basic principle. I experienced NO frustration with it, compared to the 2 circs (even tho I like that method, too)

I don't mind working the stitches back onto the needles, because I'd rather do that than have the laddering =) Once you get the 2 circs thing down, the Magic Loop is a BREEZE!!! =)

Very pretty socks! Can't wait to get some self striping sock yarn myself!
