I wrote my first posts about how I learned to knit socks on straight needles. After two pairs, I really wanted to do them in the round, but was still finding knitting with 5 double points to be frustrating. I was not any more jazzed about magic loop or two circulars though, so I was pretty much resigned to not continuing doing socks.
It all changed when I stumbled upon this little beauty:
The Addi Turbo 12 inch. Look how it’s constructed to work for knitting socks in the round. Angled needles on a 4 inch flexible cord. You won’t find this in any interchangeable sets that I know of. You have to buy the needle separately. Not going to lie, it’s pricey at about $20.00. I have it in US 1, which works perfectly for standard sock yarn. I also have one in US 6.
I was not been able to locate instructions on line anywhere on how to make my socks using this, but with my knowledge I gleaned from constructing socks on straights, I worked it out. I am going to share those instructions in a separate post.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making socks with this needle!!!
Instructions coming up!
