I am anxiously waiting for my copy to arrive! I love knitting socks - my biggest dilemma is the ladders I get between my kneedles. I hope I can perfect my sock knitting technique.
i learned a great technique for the ladder issue. when you are moving from one needle to the other, knit the first stitich normally, then when you go to knit the second stitch, you pull your working yarn tight. it works really well at eliminating the laddersa
I have knit several pair of socks and always use the long circular needle which I really like.
With the Almondine pattern I am trying to knit both socks at once on the same long needle.
I have just finished the ribbing and have started the pattern. At first I had a terrible time with my
yarns getting tangled up but have finally conquered that. Of course it takes twice as long to finish the sock but at least when I am done they will both be done.
