Thanks so much Marilyn. I've found that I'm happiest with 60cm lengths for magic looping socks - I tried 80cms but found them a bit long. A couple of people have recommended 9" circulars as perfect for socks but I've not tried those yet, I'm still finding my feet with sock knitting :)

I was leary of them too Lori but magic loop has definitely been the game changer for me. Here's to obsessive knitting putting plenty of fuel in the tank. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and for your lovely words xxx

Thanks so much Mollie, I've never liked knitting on 4 double pointed needles and always got ladders so I'm so pleased that magic loop seems to work for me - I hope you find it works for you too, Caroline's link looks like a good one.

I'm still not entirely happy with my sock knitting technique either Shehla but I'm working to the idea that practice helps make perfect. I hope you find your way to happy sock knitting :)

The two E's are certainly wise in the ways of knit. I'm coming to see what naughty purchases that unknown to you person has made, better keep an eye on them as I might get sticky fingers :)

There are some wonderful sock yarns out there aren't there Vivienne? There's probably more choice in sock yarn than any other kind. One of the nice things which is handy for us bunny makers is that when you've knitted a pair of socks there always seems to be a little bit left over that's just enough for a bunny cardi :) Hope you're having a lovely summer, I hope to pop by and visit your blog soon and catch up properly, xxx

Happy socking to you too Hazeyj, I think you're right about the cooler breezier days making us want to make socks - a bit like lining your nest in time for winter!

Thanks so much CJ. I don't like knitting with lots of pointy needles but magic looping on a long circular needle has converted me to sock knitting! I definitely recommend giving it a go and now understand why there are so many sock knitters out there :)

Umm, still sock knitting here, and a little obsessively truth be told. I'm not quite sure why, but it might be because the weather here has felt distinctly autumnal lately. Or maybe it's to do with the undemanding rhythm of... Continue reading

Yes you're right Caroline and I think the Emily's favourite socks pattern is one I will come back to and knit again. Thanks so much for your suggestions too, I think I'm a bit hooked on sock knitting now so will be checking those out in a moment!

Hi Alice and thanks so much for the recommendation, we know that it's one to explore coming from you. We've booked in on their open day in September and have had a good read of the course outlines and it sounds perfect and the campus looks wonderful. Thanks again for thinking of us J x
