Emily Explains: Knitting with Two Circular Needles
If you read my post last week, you’ll know that I’ve been trying to teach myself how to use the magic loop method. I promised that I would start my next pair of socks using this method…
I didn’t get too far on my new sock, but I did get the chance to visit another yarn shop in my area, Bella Yarns. I had a wonderful day with Naomi and the customers that stopped in. We talked about everything from babies to our love for the classics and all things fiber. My favorite part of the day was sitting on the sofa and joining in on their knitting class. The ladies were fabulous – full of stories, spunk and exquisite knitting. I can’t wait to join them all again soon!
One of the ladies I was sitting next to was wonderful and full of energy. She was knitting the most beautiful sweater for her granddaughter. I noticed she was knitting the first sleeve using two circular needles. I’d seen and heard of this being done, but had never tried it myself. She inspired me to learn this method of knitting in the round using two circular needles.
Here it goes…
I really like this method! I definitely think that I’ll use it in the future. I’m not sure which I like better (one circular needle versus two circular needless) just yet… which method do you prefer?
