I love the colour of this yarn but confess that I do not like the Regia as much as Opal sock yarns to knit with. Unfortunately, I bought ten balls on sale. Ah well.
As for the Magic Loop? The jury is still out. There are several advantages for me, but I still dislike working with circulars and their disappointing habit of kinking and snarling. Speed may be the deciding factor. It certainly is faster than juggling four or five DPNs.
I shall now transfer Mr L’s Vanilla Mansocks to circs and see how they progress. Then I shall feel equipped to make a decision.
I think I shall also try the Bayret hat on Magic Loop as well.
What I have to do now is to exhibit some Socktoberfest backbone and get the Vanillas done before I sidle off to play with lace or cables. I owe it to Mr L to produce for him at least one pair of wearable socks!
