Another Rainy Monday...

It's raining again...

and there was no traffic today. My stress-less morning commute allowed me to get to work almost 30 minutes early. Yay! Happy President's Day! Early to work means a half an hour of Starbucks and Knitting. A great way to start a Monday.

I've been resting my shoulder for the past week, and it's feeling much better. I just haven't knit that much this past week. This morning I was able to make some progress on my Klaralund sleeve.

Everyone's knitting up socks. and having quite a bit of fun with them. I think the portability factor is the most appealing thing to me. I'm trying to look for the most convenient way to knit them. The dpns vs the 2 circulars vs the magic loop. I found a tutorial on knitting with the circulars. Well, it's for two socks on two circulars at the same time. Seems a bit daunting, but at least you'll have the pair done at the same time.

I hope you all have had a Happy Monday.

Thanks for the link of that tutorial, Eyeleen... I have been thinking about trying this. I am not a fan of DPNs!

Hope you have a good week!

I'm enjoying knitting two socks on two circs at the same time. I'd have to say, though, that it makes it a bit less portable. Two socks, two circs, two balls of yarn, makes for a big bundle with lots of tangling possibilities. It's cool getting two put together at the same time.

For portability I really like the magic loop method. Only one circular needle to keep up with versus two circs or 5 DPNS is really nice for me. Maybe that's just because I also have two small children to keep up with.

Let us know how it turns out.

i'm really mystified by the whole circular needle sock knitting thing! i'm too much of a wimp to try it right now, since i'm comfy with my dpns, and since, well, i'm a wimp to try out new things! i'm looking forward to see how it goes if you try it out.

hope your shoulder is better :)
