Socks is good for you.

I love to have lots of socks. That is why my 4 current WIPs 3 are socks. Woo hoo. A pair of knee socks for my daughter. One down and past the heel on the second. They are my first toe up and short row heel socks. mmmm I have not decided 100% if I like toe up. I think I prefere top down, but won't rule out toe up. The second pair of socks is for my sockapalooza pal. I have one finished and will cast the on for the other soon. I love them. I learned a new cuff and heel for these ones. It is eye of partridge heel. Pretty neat. Last night I cast on a pair of socks for me. I am using trekking. I have no clue what color number. To me it looks like someone blew up a rainbow in a forest. I am using a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks (love it!). So far they are turning out awesome. Plus all of these socks have been done using magic loop. OMG magic loop where have you been all my life? I was using dpns for my socks, but now that Yvonne showed my magic loop, I can't see me going back to dpns. Magic loop is easy, quick, and very portable. Love it so much. Well that is all for today folks. Maybe pictures tomorrow. I was to lazy to upload today. ; ) !
