After getting my first paycheck from my radio job I decided to use a little to get a few unnecessary but wanted items. I have been wanting to start knitting socks but I’m not a fan of the DPN process. I picked up 2-At-A-Time Socks by Melissa Morgan-Oakes at the library and decided that this was the method for me.
The first thing I needed to get a hold of was a set of long and little circular needles. I wanted something cheap just in case I didn’t end up using them as much as I planned. I took a risk and bought a set of thirteen sizes ranging from 0-8 with a length of forty-seven inches from Amazon for eighteen bucks. These needles hadn’t been reviewed so I have no idea what they will be like. The joins seem sturdy and pretty smooth just from looking at them and the cables are really flexible.
Then of course I had to stock up on sock yarn as I only have worsted and bulky weights in my stash. I picked up some Patons Kroy in a camouflage colorway for my brother, some Joann Sensations Breeze in a juicy pink colorway for my sister, and some Hobby Lobby brand yarn in blue for my boyfriend.
I can’t wait to get started! I hope to have my brother’s socks completed by the weekend.
What method do you use to knit socks?
