Hi! I'm Tam and this is my first time posting for the KAL. I have started my mystery socks using THIS pattern. It seemed mysterious enough to be a surprise to me and it seemed like it would go quick since it uses two strands of worsted weight yarn held together. Here is my progress so far:
I am using some very nice alpaca yarn that I got from Elann. I hope it's not too itchy! Yes, I am oh so skillfully using 3 dpns and 1 set of circular needles. I couldn't find enough size 7 dpns to make a set. I usually only use dpns this size to make I-cord (only using 2 at a time) so the sets tend to get separated and never reunited. Hence the added circular.

I'm enjoying everyone else's posts and hope to have some serious progress to show after the weekend.

  • Hi... if you have another size 7 circular, try the magic loop method and forget the dpn's.

    Happy Knitting!

  • I know a lot of people love using circulars instead of double points. I've tried magic loop and also two circulars. I really didn't like it. I've never had a problem with dpns. I enjoy using them. I think I'll pop out to Hobby Lobby and get some more cheap dpns. They seem to be working nicely with this "sticky" yarn. I have some bamboo ones but the yarn WILL NOT MOVE on them. :-)

  • Hello my lovely,

    Good to see you here! Aren't you quite the rebel (and might I even say show off?) with your multiple needle skills. Your finished projects always turn out beautifully.

    Itchiness is the main reason I tend to shy away from alpaca. Please let us know if that's the case with these socks.
