I finished these socks last weekend. They are Charade Socks in Two Windows Dye Co. Knitty Bitty sock.
I used size 0 Hiya Hiya Sharps on a 40 inch circular.
These I finished before I started the previous pair. I just sort of made up a pattern for these and I used Lollipop self striping. I used a size 1 Chiagoo 40 inch circular.
This is my current sock in progress. I am using Araucania Huasco on a size 0 Hiya Hiya Sharp 40 inch needle. The pattern is called Bowties are Cool. I am not following it exactly I changed the heel flap since I am not a big fan of the garter stitch edges on the one the pattern called for.
I am going to admit that I used to think using Magic Loop was like going to dark side in Star Wars. I was old school double point needles all the way. I dabbled in two circulars some but I always preferred the double points, but one day I lost one of my needles somewhere so I decided to try Magic Loop. I have gone to the dark side all the way. All three of these pairs of socks were knitted Magic Loop.
