weekend experiment!

Fiesta "Boomerang" yarn
Rhubarb color
Toe-up socks on two circulars! I split the ball in two, placed them into a ziploc bag with two tiny holes at one end (yarn tangle control), & tried Judy's Magic cast-on (I'm a TOTAL convert!).

The needles are huge.
It's like knitting socks on telephone poles.
I think I'm liking it.

Ooh, coming over to the dark side!
If you stay, you won't miss dropping your dps hither and thither and out of the stitches, especially with knitting on the go!

Toe-up socks with Magic Cast-On...what more could a sock knitter ask for. ;-)

Ps. I'll reply to your email soon. Sorry it's taking me so long.

Magic cast on is, well, magic!! I use it pretty much exclusively when I do toe ups!!

It's always fun to experiment!

I love Boomerang! I love Judy's Magic Cast On. Now if only I could actually finish a toe-up sock I would feel all powerful.

Awesome Idea - the Ziploc thing...I want to do my next pair that way...2 at once! Wondered about the yarn management system...thanks for the idea!
