Thank You For Teaching This Old Puppy New Tricks

Liat, THANK YOU for the classes on Magic Loop and Toe-Up, Two-at-a-Time socks. I'm knitting the gussets of my socks now, and so far the knitting has been a breeze! I practiced the Magic Loop as instructed in your videos, then braved the toe-up socks class. It took several tries just to knit the first row after casting on. Judy's Magic Cast-on was a breeze, but keeping that last stitch on, even after twisting the tail around the working yarn, was a lesson in extreme patience!; but once I got it, I was off & knitting!

I started my first toe-up socks yesterday midday and just couldn't put them down, I was thrilled that I'd learned something so unexpectedly special.

Thank you for teaching this old puppy new tricks!

    Hi! I was wondering what the name of this heel turn is! It is one of the best heel turn methods I have ever seen, and I want to make sure I remember it!

      Hello,
      I just talked to Liat and she verified that it is the Fleegle heel.

      Happy knitting,
      Candy
