Finished these, finally.

The kids have been going to bed at eight. Now I have a nice block (4 hours) to do many things. I have finished my daughters socks in two knitting nights. So I am going to use these circulars to start knitting my second sock. I can't figure out how to knit two socks on two circular needles. I have downloaded some directions on these. But I can't visually see it. I am confused about it. So until then I will knit two separate socks on two separate needles so I won't have to go through this second sock syndrome. Always, always happens to me. I can knit up a sock quickly, but the second sock................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Here is a pic of them, sumi calls them "Candy Socks". I goofed up. I uploaded a blurry pic, seems I don't know how to delete it. Oh well.
I really loved knitting socks with the Magic Loop Method. It so nice and easy. I can't believe that I can actually turn a heel with no problem. I am amazed everytime I do it. I discovered that I was grafting the toe wrong. So I took the first sock and redid the toe. I feel cuckoo. I did it to my husband's too. LOL.
I knitted slippers with my small knittingloom a while ago. I was kind of afraid to make a heel, so I made it tubular. They came out pretty good, but they are always slipping down. (Maybe bc it doesn't have a heel lady". I was thinking of frogging half of it and making a heel. I can just put the loops back on the loom and proceed to make a heel, that way they will have a good fit. I am going to try it out on my knitting night.
Too bad I can't find any knitting partners close to me in Egypt. I feel like a lonely knitter.

I wasn't sure which type of lace mundillo was until I found the Museo del Mundillo
-- ah! Bobbin lace, like my friend Tatt3r does.

Those are pretty socks, nice Spring-y colors!
