Well, it really *is* a challenge

So when I chose my sock pattern, I decided that I'd do it on two circs to try to learn a new technique.
I've tried two socks on two circs, and that was a disaster. Maybe one sock would work out better.

Or maybe not.

On Monday, I kept picking up the wrong needle, and Magic Loop-ing instead of two circ-ing.

This morning, I went one better.

The sock is on one needle again. *But* even better, I somehow twisted the needle. Here's a better look.

Pass the DPNS, please.

Yeah, I couldn't get far at all trying the ML method. My first ever knitted thing was with DPNs, so I never had the scare of them, and while I like the idea of knitting two socks at once, it's not worth the aggravation to me of fiddling with the cable.

Donna, that's so funny! I think I'll stick with my dpns :-)

I've never had trouble with that! I wonder why. I'll tell you how I do it, maybe that will help. When I come to the end of a needle I look at the next round, grab the cable poking out of the back and pull, so the stitches go forward onto the needle tip they belong on, then I slide my fingers down the length of the cable I'm already holding and that's the right one. It might take a little bit longer, but I have never knit with the wrong needle.
