Loving the 9 inch mini circular needles. In fact, I am slightly obsessed with sock knitting at present and have produced a few pairs this month. As much as I love my knitting looms, I have to admit that knitting on the mini circulars is a lot quicker and also a lot more portable. I got loads done on train journeys this month and even some at lunchtime at work.
I do need to think more carefully about the number of cast on stitches as they are perhaps a little loose. For anybody interested, i do not have one particular sock pattern I am using as I have kind of cobbled together my favourite elements for a ‘vanilla sock’. I can highly recommend the Fish Lips Kiss heel method as developed by SoxTherapist (see Ravelry). Also, after trying DPNS and not liking them much, I have discovered how to do the toe decreases using two mini circulars. So basically I am well pleased with myself as I can now knit socks!
