Yesterday, I decided to do the Socknitter’s Cybersocks class for 2 Socks on 2 Circulars. It’s something that I’ve never tried. After reading through the Lesson 2 instructions once, I decided to go for it — by memory. Bad idea. Since I’m a visual person, and I paid more attention to Sheron’s pictures than her text and I’ve always used Cat’s method for joining the two ends. Needless to say, I made a huge mess and had the yarn on opposite end of the needles at the end of the first round. It’s a-frogging I went.
Instead of dogging it, I chickened out and used Sheron’s method of pulling the end between the first and second stitch. Wow. It worked.
The yarn that I’m using is Koigu Kersti Merino Crepe, knitted on US #2, with 7.5 stitches to an inch. I casted on 48 stitches. I don’t know how this will wear, but it’s really, really soft. It’s a cabled yarn (3×3).
Here’s the picture of the first 2 bobbins of the Lorna’s Laces rovings. Navajo plied, it’s about sock weight. I have 350 yards so far.
My imagination is running wild with possibilites on what I will make with it.
Finished one of Mom’s socks. I decided not to cast on the other sock yet to work on the Cybersock class.
