Here is a pic of my new toy, a Clover Mini Circular.
This nifty little needle allows me to knit socks, sweater
sleeves, or any other small tube. The sky is the limit.
So far, they work fine. Haven’t exactly figured out how I will acheive the gusset part of the sock with them.
I guess with stitch markers and ssk at one end, and k2tog at other end. The yarn is ‘Candy’ by Artful Yarns. It will become socks for Mom.
On another note, I watched Cat Bordhi today on Knitty Gritty. She was teaching the Magical Mobius knitting she is famous for. She is a very good teacher. I finally understand the concept and am ready to cast-on. I only lack the 47″ circular I will need. I can see why people say she is a genius…the woman was doing a mobius cast-on behind her back. Crazy. Here’s the link with the pattern. They used Hand Maiden, by Fleece Artist, in Rose Garden. The finished project is gorgeous. Take a gander next time it plays on DIY Network. It’s a keeper.
