An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

After reading Frivole's posts about circular needles and Turkish cast on I thought I'd have a go at knitting with two circular needles. I started off knitting one tube on two needles. It was a necessary step in the learning process, but no improvement on knitting with double pointed needles - I still had four short needles but with the added complication of cables. But knitting two socks at once could make the process worthwhile. It took me a few goes to get the hang of it, but eventually I produced two little tubes. I used different colours to help me keep track of it all.
Then I looked up Turkish cast on. Wow, it's a revelation. Very easy, very neat way of casting on for toe up socks. Now to see if I can knit a pair of socks, toe up, two at once.....Thanks for the inspiration Frivole.
