On my couch or at work

I haven’t watched Office Space in years!

I have a little bit of work to do today, then it’s all knitting time. I started the 2″ ribbing on the cuff of my first BFF sock, so I might get to bind off today.

I have a question. It may echo into the abyss, or I may get a response. Do you like to Magic Loop?

If you had asked me when I started these socks, I would have said NUH-UH. The only benefit I would have found would have been the ease of trying the socks on — it’s hard to pull a sock on 4 dpn’s over your heel! I hated having to constantly drop the working yarn to scoot the sock around when I finished a row.

Now, I think I love it. It makes that wicked Figure 8 cast-on much easier, and I’ve gotten over my distaste of dropping the yarn. I can pull it over my heel without problem, too.

I’ve never tried socks on two circs; I dislike it on principle, though. Having to buy 2 sets of circular needles at umpteen dollars each, versus buying 1 long circular for the same price? I live on a budget, people! I can see benefits, though, so at some point I may try it.

No pictures today. I have to empty the card and burn all of those pictures to a CD before I can take more.
