Just a quickie post today. But I wanted to report that I’ve got one Southwestern Sock completed.
Sportweight socks knit up really fast!
The Fiesta Boomerang is lovely to knit. I’ve made a start on the second sock.
Socks on Two Circs
Nope, I have no plans to start knitting two socks on two circs at the same time. As was pointed out in the comments, it is not the best thing to be doing for commuter knitting. But one sock on two circs works just fine for me. I note that some of you feel the 16″ circs are too short, but they work perfectly for me. I tried 24″ and they just seemed a bit long. To each his/her own, eh?
For people who are having problems visualizing how to do a sock on two circs, there is a very helpful video at KnittingHelp.com. Check out this page. Under the heading “Small Diameter Circular Knitting” there are three videos — one for dpns, one for two circulars, and one for magic loop.
Speaking of magic loop, I’ve no plans to try that.
But never say never. For all I know, next week I’ll give away my entire stash and start crocheting granny squares in Red Heart acrylic.
(Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
Today is Thursday so it must be time for a book giveaway.
This is a copy of Fisherman Sweaters, by Alice Starmore, and like last week’s giveaway, it was very generously donated by Joanne F.

Momma can crochet with Red Heart if she likes, as long as she doesn’t interfere with my nap schedule too much.
