Monkey socks, or how I learned to love Magic Loop
Despite being a diehard double-point woman all my life, I finally learned to appreciate Magic Loop. All it took was finally getting my hands on a pair of the new Addi lace needles. I was one of those who wrote to Skacel last year pining for an Addi with a sharper tip, but little did I know that as a bonus the cables would be sooooooo wonderful. It's easy enough to knit Magic Loop with any old Addis, but with these it's a dream. I got an email from Karin Skacel the other day telling me there would be larger sizes coming next year, I can't wait! (Not that I need to buy a bunch more Addis, but I probably will). These, incidentally, are size US1 in the 32" length- just right for socks. Yarn, as I previously mentioned, is Yarn Pirate.
P.S. I'm liking the Monkey pattern- easy and fun.
