So I have lost my knitting mojo.
^ These are a HOT FUGLY MESS!!^
I got sidetracked a little last month and took up a sock class on how to knit 2 socks on 1 needle toe-up (by the way it was a very decent class where I learned a few things). And I decided to get all fancy with the basic pattern that was given to us in class and called myself making a "lace pattern" that I looked up in some random book......big mistake. I should have stuck to the boring stockinette! LOL!!
While I won't go into the project details since I won't be logging this one into the books ;op
I will say I did learn how to do the Turkish CO (also known to some as the magic cast on), and loved that you turn the heel without picking up stitches!! I never had to take the socks off the needle - not one time (loved that!), and I discovered how to do a simple reinforcement heel.
Could someone please enlighten me how on earth do I bind off on these puppies without the "ladder"occurring by not having to transfer them onto DPNs?? Am I missing something? I may need to finish watching this DVD I have over here on how to do 2 socks on 2 circs (which is way too much maneuvering - but has some good tidbits on there).
Oh well! I have to chalk this one up for the books and wear these for now :oD
Y'all get your red and purple pom poms out and hope that I get out of this knitting slump soon!
I am hoping that making my yarn wishlist and checking it twice to shop for future projects will get me all excited again!
