Happy Thanksgiving to all -

pink hatI'm almost finished with the lacy cap that I think will be my mother's. It's a fun knit, but if you try it, do not use yarn that doesn't have a good stretch, and use pointy needles. K3 tog is horrible with Wool Ease and Denise needles, which are, at best, blunt instruments.

My copy of Socks Soar on 2 Needles arrived yesterday, so I took up my Addis, fetched some lovely grey yarn, and nearly squinted myself to death. Hint: if you have never tried a technique, do not use bright silver needles and silvery grey yarn. I switched over to Online Linie 3, tried again, and -

two circs
I think I get the basic concept.

However, I'm sure I look like this right now,It'll get better. Right?

Oh, no kidding, it'll get better. I LOVE 2 circs now. Only on the first pair knit this way, but I don't think I'm ever going back.
You had a great day from the sound of it!

Once you get the two circs down pat then it'll be on to the magic loop and becoming a sock-a-holic!! Don't you just love learning new techniques?

Yes, I love learning! So why am I so hesitant to try new knitting techniques? I always figure them out, and then I'm always happy. It's like I'm passive/aggressive to myself!
