I went over to my new favorite local yarn shop, My Sister Knits, and found a pale yellow, machine washable, merino yarn along with the appropriate #2 sized tools.
I came home, updated my Ravelry inventory, then opened up YouTube to learn how to do the following:
- Judy's Magic Cast On
- Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off
The instructions suggest using 2 circular needles, but that 2 double-pointed needles will also work.
I am now at the widest point of the first sock. It feels a little tight as I reach the end of each row, but since the sock gets narrower from here, I am going to finish with the dpns.
I can't wait to see what it looks like.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
