I was just sitting here, playing with my double points, and attempted the Figure 8 for something like the 20th time. All of a sudden I had knitting on my dpns!
Holy cow excrement! I cannot believe I just figured it out and I wasnt even looking at any directions for the Figure 8. I was just trying to remember what I saw on an episode of Knitty Gritty that I recorded onto my TiVo awhile back.
Now all I have to do is figure out how to do the increases and there could possibly be knitted socks in my future.
I'm going to go wander around the internet and look at sock yarn. I figured out the cast on while playing with the 10.5 dpns and worsted weight Red Heart...maybe I'll keep playing with the Red Heart yarn and ginormous dpns and make an Xmas stocking (the yarn is green)
