Socktoberfest FO: Mummy Socks
I love how they came out, and I still think they look like mummy wrappings :) The pattern is a heavily modified version of Destin and the yarn is Panda Cotton in the Sahara colorway.
I actually got a shocking amount of knitting done while on vacation, what usually happens is that I bring tons of projects and then knit about one row on a scarf the whole time we're there. But this time, the goal was to relax as much as possible so that made for lots of knitting time. I finished one plain vanilla sock in 2 days! I'm hoping to get the other one done by the end of the month, I'll take pictures when I finished pair. I also tried out magic loop for the very first time:
So far, I'm not impressed. There just seems to be a lot of moving things around and fiddling to get to the next round, and I know it's my first try, but it's waaaay slower than dpn sock knitting. Also, the cords get in the way and makes me want to stab them.
So what's your favorite method for knitting socks? Dpns? Magic Loop? Two circs?
