Knit one...

I finished a second pair of socks using Wendy Johnson's basic toe up sock pattern!
I used a smaller needle (2.25mm) and fewer stitches than the first pair, and they fit like a glove. Yay!
in a pretty teal colour!
Now, I am tackling two at a time toe up socks using Melissa Morgan-Oakes book.
I still used Judy's Magic cast on, and magic loop knitting.
It was a little harder to get started, and the stitch increase was a new one for me, but at least there are no double wraps!
So far I haven't gotten them mixed up!
Meanwhile.......

.....the girls pose on Who's Your Granny?
Hope you're having a good week-end!

Cute! I add a safety pin or stitch marker to the front of the first sock and that helps me to not mix them. :-)
