I think I have mastered two-at-a-time socks with the Magic Loop method. Sorry if that sounds like some uber secret knitting code. It might as well be, as I cannot explain how to do it. I just figured out a way to make it work for me. Anyway, the next step into today's knitting geek-dom was to dye my own sock blanks. Joanne T. buys the wool, Liz, super geek of everything, knits the blanks up double stranded on her knitting machine, then I dye my own. As you can see, I have a ways to go with that technique. Right now I could be a 70's hippie tie-dyeing t-shirts. However, I am rather liking how subtle the socks are turning out. This may mean I never buy commercial sock yarn again. Well, maybe never, anyway.
I'm a sure enough Dallas native who spent a good part of my life in northern New Mexico, where I learned the arts of spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Combining those skills with my long time love, knitting, is what I do best these days.
