Magic Loop FO

ML 11 Magic Loop Socks completed

2885727382_8dd51ee082 Done!

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!

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
