Joanne came over with her son Grant yesterday for a knitting session. Both Joanne and I are signed up for the Knitting Central Sock Club and the first sock is called Chutes and Ladders designed by Danni Conway. It's a great sock and it's even better because it's applying a new technique that I've learned in theory, but never actually used - Judy Becker's Magic Cast On from Knitty. Joanne and I spent over an hour watching Cat Bordhi's You Tube video (with Cat Brodhi's self-professed crazy sing-songing voice which caused great laughter - but darn it if it didn't get stuck in our brain housing groups just like Cat promised!) If you've never done toe-up socks because you can't figure out the Magic Cast On - check out the You Tube. It's brilliant.
I bet Cat's sing-songing voice will get stuck in your mind, too.
I enjoyed Judy Becker's brilliance so much I cast on for 4 different socks. You know me. Why would I stop at one pair when I can cast on for two pairs of socks at the same time?
