During the wonderful Indieburgh Yarn Crawl in Edinburgh this June, I attended a class to learn to knit using Magic Loop. The class, taught by the talented Clare Devine, was so fantastic that I soon picked up the technique.
The next step was to knit a sock! Using Clare’s beautifully illustrated pattern book, “Sock Anatomy”, I started my first proper sock. The Flexor pattern was quick and very easy to follow: a pair of hiking socks flew off my needles followed by a nearly completed “Mind The Gap” pair.
Having thought that I would never be a sock knitter, I’m now a bit of an addict and my yarn stash seems to have expanded surreptitiously with a variety of sock yarns awaiting their turn!
