Bloomin' Feet II Update

Gosh...I hadn't realized that it had been so long since my last post. Bad blooger!

So Bloomin' Feet II Update...when last I wrote I had plans to knit the Iris Garden Socks, which is an ole Six Sock pattern. Well Magic Loop was a snap to pick up and I already have done my fair share of stranded knitting. I just didn't like to color combo so after 3 froggs I ditched the pattern but decided to keep the Black Bunny Fiber yarn. The search began for a new pattern and Eurecka (since I really wanted to knit up something unique for my Bloomin' Feet pal) I chose the Rock the Stars pattern that was created by Glampyre Knits exclusively for Scout's Indie Swag club. The pattern is super easy to memorize and I'm cruising along...considering I only started yesterday afternoon (I was able to sneak in the knitting with the very sharp Knit Options needles to an Arena football game last nite). It is also my first sock knitting on 2 circulars...love it!




Note: I adore the Go Knit bag...I've had it since last month and I first used it to bring to the game. NO DROP BALL OF YARN! Gonna have to get the middle and large sizes as soon as they are back in Scout's shop!

Okay, that's it . . I have to have you teach me Magic Loop. I'm all messed up here with these super small dpns and . . UGH! . . I think that's my stumbling block to knitting socks. I just can't seem to get them under way. So, you knit with two circs . . or one? I want to learn the one circ method.

I have one of those bags too and they're awesome!!

I have some issues with my Bloomin Feet socks as well, yarn on hold, pattern not fitting.. Good to read that you have overcome yours. The beginning of this sock looks lovely and I am impressed how fast you are cruising along.
