but, i want to knit socks for marco, for when he visits in the winter. and i found a nice green yarn (from stash) for him (green, HIS favorite color) … though he assures me that he will wear any color(s) i knit.
today, while out doing laundry, i cast on this pattern (Haring hit Maassluis), it is free.
it will be a good knit … all texture, in a gansey style. because of all the knits and purls, i'm trying to hold my yarn in my left hand.
it is awkward. and i wonder if it would be easier with dpns instead of magic loop. BUT, the stitches are made faster. the slow part comes from switching from one needle to the other.
